Some of us would say that not everything you see in social media is true. Yes. But, I don’t think they are fake either. We all have our reasons for sharing what we share.
My pets are stray cats that just magically appeared on our doorstep, and of course, the more you feed them, the more they would stay. So stay they did until days turn to a year and so. I gave them names; I play with them. They make me sane. I hate how I become so attached and emotionally dependent to them, too. Sigh.
The people in our lives are like chapters in a book. We meet them in certain happenstance, and sometimes, they just stay there. We can’t really expect them to be there in the succeeding chapters, and that’s fine because they still serve their purpose. They still impart something on us; they are still part of the story.
With this, I believe first impression lasts, given that some of my friends still remember. Maybe, firsts are really instilled in our brain hard. Though, I also believe that not all first impressions matter in the long run, especially when it's not the real you. Maybe the first impression says so much about the one taking us in instead of us coming off as something.
