01/09/2006: "Strangers we call friends"
Have you ever wondered why you act differently depending on who youíre with? (Or is it just me?) Different people bring out different aspects of my personality...for example, some people bring out the serious, self-righteous ass-hole in me, and others bring out the dorky, giggly, little girl. And it's not necessarily anything *they're* doing...ya know?
Along those same lines, I find it fascinating how you can think you know exactly what to expect from someone you've known for years and then suddenly they surprise you, and you realize you don't really know them at all. Maybe the me I am around them, has been bringing out the them they are around me and our personalities have been feeding off each other further convincing ourselves that we know exactly who the other person is...?
So what if one day, something changes and you can relate to them on a different level? I suppose there are people out there who have a strong (yet completely wrong) impression of me... and I can't really blame them because they're basing that opinion on how I react when Iím around them. I guess ultimately I like the idea that maybe I'm still capable changing, and of pleasantly surprising someone else as I've been recently surprised.
