There are many kind of people who vary in their personalities; in their natural instincts :)…some who just can’t be happy with the warm relationships that nourishes our lives, some who always were ; are and will be happy. Few who had to do something for their self satisfaction ’ :).
They know..infact everyone of us know –the theory of loving and being loved which is really very necessary to live an emotional healthy life ahead..buttt? again there are some people who think like –>what if its against my self esteem”? What if;something inside is pinching me everyday –honestly saying the irritating vibration of their nature, instigating our mouth’s switch 2 open n just label those people with some good tag, definitely will show a mark of emotional maturity if you dishing it out this way ..now I am here to help you memorize those terms exactly fitting few of those personalities 🙂
IF you, hate people who just flatter rich person’s ego..you say in hindi- ‘chamchagiri karna’ :P. A hypocrite. You in order 2 maximize your desires are absolutely ready to cultivate their property; their absurd behaviours…now in this situation what would you label them as—“SYCOPHANT’.
