Sometimes people will do everything possible to try to give the illusion that you are a monster. I think it has a lot to do with their own imperfections, things they are lacking, or opportunities they haven’t taken. People will take the time to weigh you down if you let them. This does not apply to all people. One assumption cannot be applied to ALL people, or a group of people.
Everyone is different. Everyone’s drive, goals, and dreams are different. Everyone’s motivation is different. Everyone’s outlook on life is different. Everyone’s reason for doing, or not doing something is different. People are a very complex and mysterious species. They cannot be defined as one. I think our differences make us unique and beautiful. At the same time, our differences can make us very ugly, and in some cases, one in the same. People fear change and difference the most. People are afraid of understanding, because understanding could mean that you are absolutely wrong. People are afraid of reality, because reality means that it may not be your way. We try to create a world that is safe (an illusion), instead of taking risks and exploring every option possible.
When someone sees you doing the opposite of societies expectations…your wrong. It is wrong for you to go outside of the box. It is not right for you to be out of uniform. It is wrong for you to think beyond the guidelines that are set. No one thing works for everyone. I sit and think of a million things, and not one of them is wanting to be heard…because its different. It will cause discomfort. People can become afraid of stepping outside of their comfort zone. I was that person. Sometimes I am that person still. I have produced more good and great things by willing to be uncomfortable than I have being comfortable.
I have the impression that fear is designed not only to hold us back, but to divide us. It divides those that accept and make the most out of change from those that don’t. It divides the open-minded from the un-opened minds. Fear makes more of an impact than we think. It is more than an emotion. It is a Lifestyle. What do I mean by that? It is a killed dream. It is a opportunity that will never happen. It is unaccomplished goals. It is doubt. It is uncertainty. It is down-sizing one’s self. Its no self-esteem and no self-worth.
People walk away and run from the things they fear. To push pass our fears is to enter into our destiny. A lot of us are destined to be more than what we are, and where we are. Most are afraid of the pain and endurance you have to go through to get to the treasure. Some where along the way we gave up. Along the way we planted that same doubt into others. To hear someone talk about their goals, dreams, and how they will attain them makes us feel like we coulda, woulda, shoulda…so we hope they don’t. To satisfy the stillness and settling within us. When did we loose ourselves? Why did we loose ourselves? So many people in our life time will do us wrong. There are many times we will face setbacks. Why must we take that angry out on the one person we will have to live with forever…ourselves! Why do we push others to fall down the same broken path, instead of pushing them to not give up? Is it because we don’t want to see someone doing what we could have done? Self hatred? Regret of loss? Where does the chain break? When will the chain break? When do we get up and stop playing victim to our circumstances and fight to get outside of and stay out of the box?
