Being oneself

“The boy knew a lot of people in the city.That was what made traveling appeal to him – he always made new friends and he didn’t need to spend all of his time with them.When someone sees the same people everyday, as had happened with him at the seminary, they wind up becoming a part of that person’s life. And then they want the person to change. If someone isn’t what others want them to be, the others become angry. Everyone seems to have a clear idea of how other people should lead their lives, but none about his or her own.”

This is a paragraph from the book abt which im goin mad lately – The Alchemist.Gave it a little thought and realized how true it is. But then we need lasting friends too, the point is being oneself.
