Circumstances

‘For me it’s always about first impressions. I trust my instincts. I love to prepare if it’s something that requires training. But I don’t like to prepare the psychology too much. I enjoy the psychology of the character but I work better from a first impression. ‘
Billy Zane 

Frankenstein- thought to be a monster but none of the character wanted to look at the circumstances he came from

 

When you first meet  a person your first impression of him or her usually lasts forever. 

For first impressions a person looks, height, body posture, the tone of his/her voice matters a lot. 

But once you get to know that person sometimes your image of that person changes. It either gets better or worse. Circumstances according to sociology plays a major role in building up and shaping one’s personality. 

These circumstances can be good or bad. However a person who have known all along your life might  change due to certain incident or accident. Even your loved one might change due to a betrayal. 

The sudden appearance of a friend who used to be one of my closest friends during the first few years of my 23 years  got me thinking. 

There was a time when i used to believe there is nothing i don’t know about her, but her sudden disappearance, her shotgun marriage and then hearing how she was abused by her husband left me in complete disarray. 

I tried to contact her during her absence, but she never called back; she wanted to avoid me. 

Our meeting was coincidental, she was crossing the street while i caught a glimpse and practically jumped at her. I was ecstatic. She however was no way near happy. 

I met a different person today, some one i don’t know. Some one who was uncomfortable around me and wished I didn’t know her. I understand she probably wants to forget her past and everything and everyone related to it. It occurred to me, we can’t stop some people from changing. We just have to accept it and hope, those people don’t decide you’re not needed anymore. 

I wonder if I followed her path, would I do the same thing she did today if I were in her shoes? I don’t know. I won’t be able to say that now. I feel lucky to have known a little part of her life. 

And I believe someday she would be able to remember me without any regrets or remorse.
