It pays to be observant. But then again, being oblivious has it’s advantages too. Sometimes I’m glad I don’t notice things. Like when I walk past a group of people and smile, but as soon as we pass them my paranoid friend is sure they just gave us “the evil eye.” But of course I thought they were all being nice.
Maybe it’s perspective.
But then again, when you don’t notice the lies being told to you by your best friends, there’s something wrong.
Maybe I need knew best friends?
Maybe a new perspective?
Or maybe they were just trying to protect me. They were just looking out for me because they love me.
No perspective change is necessary.
Because life is bittersweet.
