What became of the World?

What happened when making friends was easy and didn’t require much effort?
What happened when people met, clicked and never became suspicious of each other?
What happened when hello meant just a hello but not “I want something from you”?
What happened when liking someone was not compounded by brakes of what to say and not what to say but just be oneself?
What happened when a woman or a man could say I love you and never to be looked at as “I want to sleep with you”, but I just like you for you nothing more?

What happened when one didn’t have to put brakes on liking but just like anyway?
What happened when people liked and didn’t stop because they were afraid, the other might want something more out of the liking?
What happened when people genuinely liked each other without much pretence or fakeness?
What happened to the world when expressing one’s liking was not encountered by hostility, fear and frown?

What happened when people liked and continued doing so even when a better likable person came along?
What happened when people liked you for one moment ,stayed and didn't go without explanation?
What happened when innocent liking was never perceived to be anything but just that?
What happened to the innocent world when people just liked without explanation but just seeking good friendship?

What happened to the GENUINE World?

You're right. The world can be a cold place - especially when you're away from home. I think the trick is to surround yourself with the right positive-minded people and avoid the negativity of others.
But above all, BE positive yourself.

Nice post! What happened to REALness & TRUEness? Now it's all about the attitude "What's in it for me?" Damn!

Whispering inn: The wolrd is a cold place indeed,I keep getting shocked by it each day. I'm keeping positive and hopeful that the genuine people outweigh the "fake"

Poi: Mama, that is so true but as Whispering said we got to be positive...

You couldn't have said it better...

Positive? that's a plus for sure!

These are the kind of things that you notice when you go to a place where individuality and personal desires are put above all things but I have some good news.......I just saved a fortune on my car insurance by switching to Geico.

Love is a gift but many of us use it for bodily gratification.

Irena said...

Instigator: Yep it is a individualistic society where people only want to know you if they can milk something outta of you but yes with Geico good news ..we live again:-)

Shiroh: Sad sad ain't it?

The world has changed and not necessarily for the better.
