I really love the fact that we finally got a chat thread since Rosie started posting here
I think we should keep it alieve, because I love chat threads with many people posting in it, like especially in Ferrer land
I also think that age doesn´t matter at all
I have very close friends from around 20 until around 50, the only think that counts is the character. Especially through tennis I got to know many people in different ages and the age isn´t important at all!
I have some very good friends I know from school, but thanks to mtf I also consider many "tennis" friends as very good friends now (you know, who you are
For me it is not important what people have achieved at which age, but the character is important and that you are happy with the life you live.
And I try not to care what other people thing is correct, which is, of course, not always easy.
I totally agree with you Birte!!! Mostly I love to talk about everything and anything!!! When I start talking (or in this case writing) I can go on for hours!!!
Definitely we must keep up here, even if it is just to say how things are going or how our day was!!! In the middle of that kind of small talk sometimes a very deep and profound conversation can start!!!
I couldn't agree more with you!!! For me what matters is what a person achieves as a human being, regardless their age!!! I guess that's why my friends are very simple persons, yet intelligent and with huge hearts!!!
Through tennis I meet (even if not personally, at least not yet) many great friends (you girls are included) who seem to care more about me then some of my "supposed" friends (who at least think they are anyway) that are closer to me!!!
I'm really interested in people's behaviour, how they think and feel!!! It simply fascinates me to learn more about those who surround me!!! No wonder I'm not that easily impressed by money or status!!! For me someone's personality and the way they can touch, inspire and help others is what I really admire!!!
This just reminds me why I like so much of Tommy On & Off Court!!! He's just a simple and humble guy!!! Sure many might follow players who always (or most of times) win and are on Top right now!!! But I prefer those players who despite not being on their best, facing though draws, having endless first round losses, never give up trying!!!
For me those players are the True Winners, because they show more courage to me then the ones who actually win!!! Starting all over, again and again, it's a difficult task and one of the best qualities that a person can possess!!! It sets and example and inspires others to do the same!!!
Thanks Tommy for being an example and an inspirations to us all!!! Keep working and believing!!! We sure believe in you!!!
I used to care too much about what people thought and said about me, but now I detached myself of it!!! Sometimes people really hurt us by what and how they say certain things, even if we know they're not totally correct, but that's normal because we're human beings with feelings!!!
