the other day, I managed to catch up with some friends. I didn’t realize that I’ve known them for over 6 years. and every time we met each other, for me, they are still the same high school/college kid that I met on the first day. they are still the same person that made me interested to become friends and stay being friends. and it’s always bizarre for me to realize that even after many years, some things stay the same. for the better or worse.
I passed by my elementary school the other day, and I still see the same old man that sells toys in front of the school. I remember him being an “old man” when I was little. I graduated elementary over 10 years ago. and he looks pretty much the same, still doing the exact same thing, over 10 years later. I immediately feel sad. has things turn better for him for the last 10+ years? but then who am I to judge choices people make?
sometimes I wonder if I’m also the same as “the old man” in other people’s eyes. have things turned better for me?
but who they are to judge?
