Happy Friday Beautiful People!!
You made it through another week – HOLLER!!!!!!
Okay so quick question – have you ever stopped to think of what the people in your life “truly” think of you? Asin, if I asked someone (who really knows you) what he/she had to say about you, can you confidently say you’ll get a thumbs up? Curious as to why this piqued my interest? In the words on Kevin Hart ‘let me explain…’
I met up with one of my dear friends for drinks after work last night at Skyroom (on W 40th between 8th and 9th Avenue). We were catching up on what’s been “really” going on with each other. (You how it is when you talk/text/Skype someone almost every day but it isn’t until you actually see the person that you really tell the person what’s going on?) Yup it was one of those NYC nights.
Anyways, in the course of our convo he made a comment – “I love my cousin, but I would never recommend her for marriage to any of my friends… That would be punishing my friend!” He explained that she isn’t the most domestic person in the world and gave different accounts of when she demonstrated (for lack of a better term) unwifely behavior. Because I am who I am, I asked, “guy please eh, would you recommend me?? Asin in real life?? Cause if you won’t, you need to tell me now and say why?!” He cracked up and said I was good in his book. Eventually, we changed gist…
This morning, on the E train to work, 2 girls were having a similar conversation (you call it eavesdropping, I call it being in tune with my environment *tehe*). One of them got into a huge fight with her boyfriend because she wouldn’t give his brother a job. From what I could gather, she works at HR somewhere and it would be easy for her to place the guy in a position. When her friend asked why not? Her reply was something along these lines, “you have to tell him something 5 times for him to get it. He’s always high. His resume is ridiculous, he’s hopeless! I love him like a baby brother but I’ve worked too hard to ruin my reputation that way.”
I was weak. Maybe it was the timing between of the 2 conversations or just the subject matter. My mind couldn’t help but wonder – what do the people in my life truly think about me?
I have always been someone to tell you exactly how I feel (I have a long list of not-so-close-friends to prove it).
But seriously though – isn’t it our duty to set the people in our lives straight, so we could recommend them? How am I supposed to be a better person if I don’t know there’s something wrong with the person I am today?
As always, thank you so much for reading and have an amazing weekend.
Special attention to the people in my life (family, friends, mentors and co.) – feel free to use this opportunity to tell me about myself LOL! I promise I can take it.
