Who's Weird?

You know him. The childish little weirdo in class. The one who never talks to you. The one who has his own world he does not want to share with you. The one who's not good in sports, nor in socializing. He's the totally uncool person you wouldn't want to be seen with. He dresses weirdly, speaks weirdly, walks weirdly... you do the imagining, You know him, but you just don't want to be near him.

He's never smoked. He never goes to parties. He can't throw a punch right. He doesn't look pleasant. He makes you giggle when you notice him. He suffers from poor health.

How do you treat him?

You greet him daily with that pleasant smile of yours. You talk to him like he was family. You try to make him tell stories about his life, his past girlfriends, possibly, and his family. You compliment him for being cool. You offer your help whenever he's down.

But when he's not around, you make him the laughing stock of every discussion. You point out his mistakes based on his stories. You give him nicknames that are supposedly appropriate for his personality. You promise everyone that never will you be like him. You tease anyone who comes near him by saying, "Uuy, he found a bestfriend.." You do many other things I may not be able to imagine.

How does he treat you? He treats you well. You just haven't noticed it.

He treats you well, but do not assume that he doesn't know what you've been doing. He knows, and he is bothered by the fact. It forces him to stay alone. It keeps him from being the person he is, because he does not want to be treated badly. It makes him "weirder," by your standard, which causes you to make fun of him even more.

How can you possibly do such a thing? I know for a fact that many times you have "admitted" being weird, especially to the opposite sex. Nobody rejects you for being the weird person you claim to be.Yes, some people may hate you, but they never do what you do to that person you see differently.

All people are different. You have to accept that fact. And because all people are different, you don't have to make a big deal out of your petty little weird friend. Someone might actually be finding you a little too different too, but that's not an excuse for you to keep doing what you're doing.

All people are different, but no one person is more different. That's what you have to learn.

first: i really hope you dont JUST say these things. but what the hell, im sure youd just say it anyway. so whats the point of argument?

now dont tell me theres such a thing as a BAD difference.

second: i dont really want to interfere, but i dont know, not that its pity, i just dont want you being fooled.

look around you. see smiles? sometimes you should realize that frowns can, at times, be less dangerous than smiles. i really wanna tell you something kasi i dont want you fooled. pero i cant, and i musnt. just think about this: never trust anyone too much.

but i like what youre doing right now. yes, you DO need to relax. haha.

ps i have no idea why i wrote this and ill probably have no idea i wrote this by tomorrow. why did i speak in english? Son of Sin.

Don't worry pare. I felt like a hypocrite writing that, but I assure you, I changed already, over a month ago.

The word "different" is only used negatively at times they need to be negative. Remember lines like, "He's... different." to use as a reason not to like someone? Haha basta. Hindi tayo nagkaiintindihan chong. I never said there's a BAD difference; difference (something not good or bad) is only exploited as a means to derogate someone, and that's what I'm going against.

Hmmm... Nutella tastes good.

weird are those who are not able to understand others, those who only make pride of themselves, those who only sees black and white... those who only see the other side of life.
