If you had to come up with one question the answer to which would determine whether or not you could be friends with a person you’ve just met, what would it be? What would the right answer be?

My question is: Is it safe to make friends with someone I’ve just Met?

In my mind the right answer to my question is: In this world of ours there are a variety of personalities,  there is no doubt, ” human being is essentially good and peaceful.”, it’s a quote by a famous philosopher. In my mind I know at birth a child is an innocent soul, he is as fresh and pure as a daisy.

When this same human grows up he comes into contact with a variety of people, some are good some are evil, sometimes this little soul can be tempted to do things that are evil, this is one side he hasn’t learned,his parents has taught him what is good and he should always be truthful, honest and trustworthy.

When he meets someone who teaches him the exact opposite, he will be tempted to try. If he’s lucky he’d decide on his own this is not the right path, but if his curiosity gets the better of him, he’d continue to do illegal things secretly, after a while it’ll be a habit and he won’t be able to turn it around.

Good and evil seems to go side by side, this feeling will make me want to know the person first, before I  try to be friendly.

DP Daily Prompt: The Cat Says Meow Post by Ranu

Once I had three cats,their personalities were completely different. J.D was sweet,but she’d show her anger if her sleep was disturbed. Alex was a jealous cat,she disliked sharing her owners with other cats.Thursday the sweetest of all,tried hard to please everyone. J.D got along with her but made sure Thursday did not take advantage . Alex did not like Thursday or J.D.,she kept her distance from them.

After observing the three for a considerable length of time, it helped me to gain some experience. I’d take Thursday’s role but will make some changes. I’ve experienced that in this world of people and animals,one cannot be too nice.It almost always backfires.

My good friend is stuck,he was always too accommodating,but finds himself in a quandary,the more he gives in the more is expected of him,it has come to a point when it is unbearable. My fear is one day he’ll snap and all his good deeds will come to a screeching halt. I foresee that day is not too far. I will not portray the change by taking his role. I’d  rather be Thursday. So here it comes!

‘This morning J.D was playing with a ball. She was having fun. I tried to join her.She hissed at me,I was livid,I did the same to her. I moved round and round to take the ball away, I pounced and got the ball in my paw,I kept meowing, I was happy to see J.D disturbed. The ball gave me minutes of enjoyment. I thought, See I had fun and made J.D miserable,this is how I should treat them’.

‘It is my turn to be nasty with Alex, I’ll scratch her,hiss at her,when she tries to be mean,I’ll teach her I’m not the same Thursday any more.  I noticed J.D and Alex are friendly with me. Will they continue to do so if I change and become the same old meek cat pushed around by those two,I do not think so!’

The lesson to learn is,  “Do not let anyone walk all over you”!
