Saturday looks can be deceiving..

So today i been having the song on repeat that is todays song, and i noticed that it got me thinking that we as humans base our first impression on looks and its said that it takes us 4 seconds to base a whole conception of a person in those seconds. From listening to this song on repeat over and over it made me realise that it is so true. But even tho when you go past those 4 seconds thats when you start seeing the person thats gonna emerge from under the surface.

What i wanna know and i will probably never really understand it myself is how often a comment come flying that might not even be true, but its all based on those 4 first seconds. I know that people who not really know me think that im that quiet, uncomfortable person that just dont know what im doing there and then. I also know people whisper about me behind my back based on this impression.

But then i have the friends who just say “well yea he is quiet but thats cause he dont know you and he is hopeless at holding conversation” Im not really worried what others think about me anymore, cause i kinda gave up on that thought long ago since it doesnt matter(?), i am who i am and i still am finding out more about myself every single day. Life for me is a journey of selfdiscovery and to just find happiness in the end, even tho currently im not in a happy place i still wanna find happiness.

But yea for me those 4 first seconds is enough to trigger my intresst, then it will take a few years for me to get to know you as a person, but one thing is for certain if you become my friend i will stay that way until you do something to push me away. But dont throw someone away after those 4 first seconds!

But todays lyrics are from Daughtry – waiting for superman:

“She’s talking to angels
Counting the stars
Making a wish on a passing car
She’s dancing with strangers
Falling apart”
