is there such a thing as the “right” people. as in, the right people to surround yourself with. or the right people to have in your life. should you remove those who negatively impact your space? or is “right” just an illusion and people are just people. to be allowed to be in your life as they are, despite whatever it is that frustrates you, hurts you or puts you off. should you instead work on acceptance and getting to a place where people aren’t able to have an impact on how you feel. a place of no reaction because reaction is not necessary. because reacting is a choice. does that place exist? or is that an illusion? from that space where you are neither happier nor saddened, calmed nor frustrated by the action of others, does joy exist? can you choose to let in the good without feeling the bad? can one exist without the other? or are you meant to feel everything in its entirety, with no expectation of control over life. yours or anyone else’s. to be here solely to watch, to experience. to just flow with the currents. to be nothing more and nothing less than just the observer.
