Why is it that some people are so determined to provide unsolicited advice?
It is astonishing to me, those who believe I am interested in receiving their version of wisdom. They lead me to become more selective when sharing myself.
Contrast these arrogant sorts, with the few to whom I gravitate. Compassionate sorts, who aren’t afraid to think, feel and live deeply. People whose discretion is beyond question. People who are not obsessed with social class; they treat the waiter as a human being. Women and men who share their joy and sorrow with equal honesty. Those are the friends to whom I turn when I seek advice, confirmation, comfort.
And while laughter might be found anywhere, it tastes sweeter in their company.
The arrogant ones – they are actually the blessing of my life. They remind me of my good fortune in having these other few in my life. I hope I may always deserve them.
