Pet Peeve #027 – Interests Misconception

Interests.

There is this misconception that sharing of an interest goes both ways.

If let’s say you & your significant other have wildly different interests. And let’s say, you made an effort to share his/her interest. Then that’s on you. You made the decision. The decision is made by you and only you. So don’t go around expecting him/her to share your interest as well. Don’t expect a payback. Be sincere. If you want to try out what your significant other loves doing, do it because you genuinely want to.

If you don’t feel like it, then don’t. It’s so simple.

I wish people will stop doing something hoping for another thing in return. It is such a tiring process. Why can’t you just do something just because you want to?

What a confusing time to be alive.
