Perfect fit

Its 6-15PM and people around me are wondering what this guy is still doing at office. I have a rep of leaving early at office - 'So what, I come early too - and right now I've no work', I quip. Fine, that's not what's on my mind now. I'm just wondering about something - life has ups and downs, sorrows and joy. But all these are supposed to build character and not make one weaker. How is a metal weakened? Alternately subjecting it to high and low temperatures. May be humans have evolved so that these alternations strengthen people and not weaken them.

I make everyone believe that I like to be different, but really I just don't know how to fit in.

I totally identify with this line... afterall we all are trying to fit into this world, this society of ours, our surroundings. And there's no perfect fit. It all begins with a change in the environment - say one changes schools, moves to a new locality, goes abroad - the first thing they have to deal with is the new circle of people around, their new mentalities, new ways of interaction. At first everything seems to be so different. Yes - it will be different. Some 'fit-in' quickly and some don't. Its this latter lot that can feel aggrieved when people don't understand them properly. But one has to realise that when we were introduced into a new environment, the environment itself would have changed and would need time to settle down. A variety of things could lead to a variety of results.

There were days when I felt exacly the same - that I don't fit in anywhere.

I'd rather be a popular idiot instead of a lonely genius...

But now I've grown passive and I really don't care anymore. I'd rather let my surroundings 'fit-in' according to me. Wierd but true...
