.thinking for myself

the reason we interact with people is because it is human nature. but respect is something that is so foreign to most people it bares a standing ovation.

in the recent week, i have taken time off from my people, the one’s who think and tell me what to do or how to live and i am still learning. i have come to a point where i have no idea what i feeling or how i think because it has been drilled in my head to many times about acting or being a certain way. the first post i wrote at the beginning of the week about ‘white bread’ so true; this week, i have found nothing else that i really like on my own because people are bombarding me with thoughts of their own stories and moralities.

work is a great place to get away from it all; my job is so busy and somewhat stressful, that i can shut off the rest of my world for at least 5 or 6 hours. i do what i have to do and the odd occasion that people i speak too make me realize how life is different for so many. i envy those who do not know any better because they keep it simple.

“keep it simple: the ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak.”

i so want to be like that – quiet, unnecessary and just the rest of the world a rest.
