When getting hurt or reacting to hurt, I tend to act cool and just look the other way. I might just be doing it because I claim that I am "lazy" to handle people's utter ignorance and stupidity, while in the process claiming to put more importance of my precious time than theirs. The alternative might just be because of my fear, that if I show my hurt and emotions towards them; in the end, I would be the only dumbass, who actually cared whether or not we are still friends or will just continue to be strangers. In theory, I would rather have someone that genuinely cares about me to notice my presence gone from his/her life, instead of someone who is just forced to falsely talk to me due to being pressured or for image sakes. Sadly, this is my reality. I have too many "strangers" in my life... but I do prefer this, then having to wait forever for nothing.
