Thorns

There are some people we bump into, who appear to be great in the beginning. They stick around, get to know you better (or they think), and gradually, when you're busy looking somewhere else, they pierce your unsuspecting flesh. And once they're inside, they fester and breed discontent, unrest, fury and attack your foundation of self-assurance. They work hard day and night to make you feel that you've been wired all wrong and the life you have led has been least enlightened. Suddenly again, they jump onto the scene, the self-proclaimed, indomitable saviours to 'help' change you, and lead you to the 'right' path. I sometimes wonder if they ever introspect to realise the flaws that lie within them. Their own mirror lies to them! Tells them that they're perfect, infallible, God-like. I seem to be passing through the valley of thorns lately. I hope it passes soon.

When we start leaning too much by depending upon the approval of people, life becomes a bed of 'such' thorns!

Well expressed!

"Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence. True friendship is a plant of slow growth, and must undergo and withstand the shocks of adversity before it is entitled to the appellation." ~ George Washington
