Sharing is caring

I think the best thing in the entire world might be sharing something that you love with someone else, and having them like it as well. Every relationship has that integral first few months that are entirely composed of just going “YOU’VE NEVER SEEN FIGHT CLUB?” or “what do you mean you’ve never eaten Pho?” then you share those things and both people’s lives are changed.

Not just romantic relationships either, just meeting people or making new friends has that as well and it’s really gratifying to share stuff and have a person trust you enough to share their favourite things with you as well.

I got to show Donny my favourite game in the world, Magic: The gathering, yesterday and it was great! I’ve been playing magic for around 6 years and I’ve had the opportunity to share it with a few people thought not as much as I would like. Every time I show it to someone, it’s interesting because I get to see the game through the eyes of a new player again. After so much of the strategy just being so ingrained into my head I don’t even think about it anymore, it’s refreshing to remember that not everyone knows how good it feels to draw cards or to play cards on your opponent’s turn.

Of course the opposite of this is showing something you love to someone and them NOT liking it. That hurts a lot, but can also be an essential tool for learning about each other. Just learning different things. For example, my girlfriend and I have very different music preferences. So that was a fun little learning moment to accept that we won’t ever agree on that specific thing. And that’s okay! Everyone doesn’t have to like all the things you like. Just try not to be a jerk about it eh?
