If someone is crushing on you, it is usually better to keep it that way—a crush. ‘Cause when they come close enough to see beyond what they are crushing on, there may not be much substance beyond their feelings to keep them attracted.
See, not everyone has to be a friend. Some have to be acquaintances, some, admirers, some, just neighbours/colleagues. Not everyone has to get close enough to smell your teeth.
I saw a post, sometime ago; something like, us getting into trouble ’cause we stayed to shake hands with people we were meant to greet and pass.
True words, those are.
Spreading our hands of friendship to every Onyema, Atinuke and Mamood tends to water down the value of our friendship. Our friendship should be earned; it shouldn’t come cheap.
Now, you may think this post is talking to you about others; but it is also talking to others about you.
