I hate good byes – they hurt too much! This one is even more painful ‘cos i don’t have my glasses this time. Let me explain – See my glasses are my shield and my barrier from letting the world look into my soul. They say the eyes are the windows into the soul.
In other words, its easier to stay disconnected because my glasses give nothing away – tears welling in my eyes are not visible and so i can afford to joke about it and move on instead of getting all emotional touchy feely!
That out of the way, I’ve noticed that we don’t look into people’s eyes anymore. As weird as it sounds, its one way people say ‘I trust you’ and in this generation, trust is a luxury. On the other hand, if you can look me in the eyes and still betray me then you simply are wicked!!!
Due to certain happenings this past week, I’ve learnt a lot about trust. My conclusion is – Don’t expect everyone to think like you. Give out little doses of trust and then let people work to build it. I guess this is the part we call the ‘benefit of the doubt’ so everyone starts my trust account with 1 and its up to you to build it or reduce it but the funny thing is that you can’t just maintain it.
This is another session of rambling but right now I’m sort of heart broken – The Ghana part of this Ghanaijachic is coming to an end at least temporarily and it is literally tearing me apart. I sort of wish I didn’t look into so many eyes with my glasses off ‘cos it hurts but I don’t regret it! I love my Ghana fam – Until when next we meet (seeing as I can’t type anymore as a result of cloudy eyes 😥 ),
P.S. Stop avoiding eyes by staring at your phone screens too!
P.P.S. I’m sorry for being REALLY irregular and I promise my next post would be by me!!
P.P.P.S I know it’ll pass but it hurts really bad right now!!! *sigh*
Love you guys!
