It was pretty ugly out there. First of all it's cold outside. The cold is not ugly, it's simply cold. I don't get it though - the number indicating the temperature is not that low, but when I'm outside it feels so cold. Am I underestimating the temperature that much, or have I become more sensitive to the cold? Anyway, what made today ugly was the people. Actually, it's more accurate to say I encountered ugly people today. The day itself is a neutral thing, a blank canvas.
I might've gone out expecting too much. I actually looked at the people while I was out and not one person seemed happy. There was no positive vibe to be found anywhere. And I must say, I felt no compassion whatsoever towards them.
As for the gathering I went to, at the end I felt an unwelcoming vibe from the speaker and her assistant. I don't know why their faces had that kind of expression when I passed by them or interacted briefly with them.
No matter how open I am to joy and positive feelings, if other people are ugly, closed, or unhappy, there isn't going to be an exchange of good feeling. Sucks to be them. But seriously, are people unhappy or what?
