I AM STANDING IN THE ASHES OF WHO I USED TO BE.
Taken For Granted!
"Most human beings have an almost infinite capacity for taking things for granted." — Aldous Huxley (Brave New World)
Someone asked me write this piece long ago and here I am pouring my writer’s heart today for some odd reason. It's funny, but have you ever noticed that the more special something is, the more people seem to take it for granted? It's like they think it won't ever change. You begin to forget what it means to you. You forget how you have been without it. You forget how you used to feel back then. And now when you have it to yourself, you dwell in unimportant things forgetting the promises you made out of choice.
Things you don’t want to hear about her sadness.
This time around she was grilled again. A series of questions and allegations.
Things that she doesn’t do and should have done. To tell her how blind she has been in life. How starved other people around her are. And how she is always right about everything. She was told that the misery of her life is not enough and they have the audacity to compare her life to others. In those long conversations she realized that it was all her, ruining everything. Yet again.
Being different means survival!
We begin life with the world presenting itself to us the way it is. Someone – our parents, teachers, analysts – hypnotizes us to “see” the world in the “right” way. These people label the world for us, attaché names, give voices to the beings and events in it, so that thereafter we cannot read the world in any other language or hear it saying other things to us. The task is to break the #hypnotic spell, so that we become #undeaf, unblind and Multilanguage. Thereby letting the world speak to us in new voices and write all its possible meaning in the new book of our existence. Be careful in your choice for hypnotist.
