* So happy for you?


Very often the ones close to us aren't the ones who are sincerely happy for our success.

Yes this was my Face book status yesterday. Reason being, not just my experience but the many others I have listened to for the past couple of weeks, makes me conclude this.

It is indeed sad, but a very factual state non the less.

Often these sort of insincere people, somehow enjoy listening to your depressed stories, and gossips with you about other people, but when you do tell them about something you have achieved, they have no time to listen to it and be happy for you, or they help you to change the topic of your conversation so that it revolves around them. If it is about their achievements, we'd have to listen to it, and I guess we do, because we sincerely care and feel happy for that person.


Then again, there are also those who listen to you, and smiles, and in their heart, burns away for what you have achieved. People like this, show it all over their face because their heart is somehow very connected to their facial expression.


I guess if you take what Jacob M. Braude had said, "Consider how hard it is to change yourself and you'll understand what little chance you have in trying to change others", one would sadly only let this issue be just the way it is.
