There are two kinds of people in this world, and they are the “I’s” and the “We’s”. Auntie Kyna, Leslie, and I came to the conclusion one night at a pub over beer while watching a live band… that there are only I’s or We’s in this world. All of us are clearly “I’s” as we were out without husbands, and boyfriends. Unfazed by what they were doing, or where they could be… enjoying each others presence and appreciating one another for being “I’s”.
“We’s” often think that they are I’s, but this is not the case. They are delusional and jealous of those of us who are “I” people. “I’s” are the kind of people who enjoy their own space, and make the most of their alone time whether that be in a productive or relaxing way. “I’s” do not fret about their boyfriends (or husbands) because they are confident with themselves enough to not have to worry about what they are doing when they are not with their other half. “I’s” are forever and always in touch with their friends, and they often know what their close friends are doing even when without them… because “I’s” are simply fascinated in what the human beings they love are doing. It impresses “I’s” when other “I’s” share their stories of travel, or life lessons because they too are striving to do the same.
“We’s” also have the tendency to stop themselves from venturing on life adventures unless someone else, mainly their significant other, comes with them. Whether that be travelling, or going to a bar/club… they will not, and most often cannot do it alone. Don’t get me wrong there is nothing wrong with “we’s,” we definitely can’t all be an “I”. They are nurturing and also infatuated with humanity, but in a more selective way, and just with their lover.
“I’s” love having independence, and making decisions that consider those they love, but ultimately will benefit themselves positively. “I’s” can be in relationships, and still remain “I’s”. That is where “I’s” and “We’s” differ. “I’s” do not neglect friends when in a relationship, but remain available and willing to spend their free time doing activities that will make memories they can share.
Whichever you tend to be, do not be ashamed… but don’t think you are an “I” either! When you are clearly a “we”.
I am sure AK, and Les can contribute… and agree.
