Love or hate

I have learned in my life experience that when someone doesn't like you, they really don't care what you do or if you live or die.

I have also learned that if someone likes or cares about you, they do care.

Sometimes this is heavily tested. Sometimes we think people don't like us, but we find out they do when they do something to show they care. Sometimes we think people like us, but we find out that they really can't be bothered about us either way.

It hurts when we find out the ones we thought were on our side aren't really after all. It's a nice surprise to know that people you least expect are rooting for your success.

In The Little Prince, it is written "only the heart can see clearly, what is essential is invisible to the eye." This has been translated differently and I am quoting from memory so the quote may not be exact, but the message is loud and clear.

What seems like an act of dislike may actually be a great act of love and kindness. Time and a different perspective will tell.
