Nice title huh?
The cycle cycles : You write a blog -> some stranger comments -> Leaves his/her blog link -> You follow that link -> You find another link on that blog -> <find more links> -> you find a neat post -> then read other posts etc.
The same thing happened with me. I visited a blog that had a post related to Yamaha Motorcycle. Now, being a Yamaha owner myself, I’ve a general affection for all Yamaha owners. So, I read a post that had details of one of the Yamaha motorcycles. Naturally, I was tempted to look at other posts written by the author.
…and there I felt sick. This dude had written all other posts related to one single topic – His recent heartbreak! Usually, I’d say ‘bah’ and close the browser. But somehow I felt I should help this Yamaha owner by boosting his morale (I owe so much to you, Yamaha!). So in one of the posts where he had cursed himself for a relationship that didn’t work I commented the following –
“Dude, maybe she was an idiot . Have a passion for something in your life and go after it. There lies the real fun.”
Now, I only commented to make this guy feel better and to inject some life in his blood. The guy track-backed me and send an email to me –
“The hangover is gone. It was me who was mad for that girl…blah blah”
‘Bah!’ was my natural reaction 🙂 . Why should anyone ‘take the blame’ (no its not blame, I know, in this context)? I’ve seen many people who think the fault lies with them when something goes terribly wrong. That’s a wrong way of thinking. You’re not always wrong. Things go wrong; don’t take the blame on yourself. Some things are ment to go wrong. Have some good ego. When something hurts your ego, put all your anger/frustration into something that you’re passionate about.
Above all, have a good self-respect & a great confidence; and if you know when/where to use it – have some (some) arrogance . It helps.
