But maybe, its just me

I find life and people confusing, and I think I've established that countless times before.


What exactly, though? People ask. And so do I.


So here is my attempt to lay out what.


I do not understand how some kind of behaviour is acceptable for some people to do and not for others. And I am aware of privileges, length of acquaintanceship, the closeness between two people, and genuine relationships. Yet, what I don't understand is why the same joke is offensive when someone else says it but not when I make it - when we both have shared the same time knowing the person the joke was subjected to. And in a similar way. It puts me off making jokes. Makes me walk on ̶e̶g̶g̶s̶h̶e̶l̶l̶s̶ glass shards. I'm done hurting my sole.

But maybe, it's just me.


I do not understand why people will judge and give out a verdict based on one side of the story. Why, for whatever reason, a well-said account is accepted instead of the truth? Or why won't they seek both sides of the story, now they've been dropped into the quagmire anyway. I understand if you don't want to delve deeper, but then please do not use incomplete information to create inferences and decisions. It hurts my soul.


But maybe, it's just me.


People like to think they are mature. Only until, in my opinion, when it comes to showing it. I don't claim I am mentally mature. I can act quite immaturely at times. One aspect of maturity people love to say they have is 'talking it out like adults' until they have to talk. Then it is an ego contest of who talks first. I've talked first often, not considering if I was right or wrong. Not anymore. It takes a toll.


But maybe, it's just me.


That's it for today. I'll be adding to this list. Maybe if I understand people in a way, I'll even remove them from the list.


I don't know if I can complete the list, or maybe the list will complete me.


But maybe, it's just me.
