This quote by Cyril Connolly I first read on Shail’s Nest and I loved it immensely. How true!
A blog space is the author’s space where he/she writes what they want to write. It could be stories, anecdotes, poetry, literature, their views, their opinions, their dreams, their aspirations and occasionally their rants. It is not necessary that everyone who stops by your space has to agree with your views or your opinions. That does not mean that they are bad or your enemies. It just means that we think different. My right may not be right for you. And your wrong may be right for me. Maturity suggests that we accept that we are all different individuals and we are bound to have varied opinions on the same topic, and this does happen even in your relationships; professional or personal. There’s nothing wrong with it. It’s absolutely okay to have difference of opinion and voicing it out.
But there are people who agree with you on your face even while they secretly do not agree to your viewpoint. Instead of voicing it out right here, they choose to talk behind your back. Since they aren’t confident enough with themselves they choose to hide their real opinion/views.
Two-faced people. This I believe is the venomous species that I would want to keep out of my blog. One that I dislike from the core of my heart. Sorry, but please stay away!
I prefer people who are real. Even if they are bitter. Of course, their words sometimes affect your mood for days. But at least they aren’t fake.
