Its not always about you


      Its never cease to amaze me how people are so caught up in themselves and

never once consider that its not always about them.  There are so many other matters

at hand to be considered, but to them it really doesn't exist.  That's until you do something

that's out of the ordinary just to get their attention and to allow them to see how selfish

they really are.

       I did that two days ago to someone whom I rreally love and admire as a human being.

Its been today's since I last turned my cell phone own consistantly.  I am contemplating how

long before they realize its not always about them and that they will see how they have

literally step all over my intent and genuine concern for them?

What I find astonishing is the fact they are exhausting all forms and kinds of rationale to 

try and ascertain why I haven't called or text them.

Its rreally kind of sad to see such a person I held high esteem for to be so selfish cruel and

unaware of how much I don't need them in my life and how much they do need me in their

life.   Its not always about this!  Its not always about that!  Its truly about how you 

contribute to life around you in order that those same contributions return to you before

you call it a day and you lay down to sleep in hopes of arising to the dawn of a new day...
