Today we have Tinder.
We also have blog posts about how having too much choice causes people to date forever and never learn what occurs within a committed relationship.
We have Facebook. Now each of us can generate a filtered version of ourselves. We can always have a perfect 3/4 view face shot and a matching outfit with smiling friends and glorious exciting backdrops. We have keyboard access to sexual gratification and canned dialog with carefully selected sounding boards that never say a cruel or negative reply.
There is an old bumper sticker. Reality is for people who cannot handle drugs. Denial I believe is humans most powerful mental capacity. Escapism fuels so many business models with devoted clients its not possible to list them. The movie line “You can’t handle the truth.” is cavernous in its correctness.
The glass is completely full.
The key to life is everything. So many people want to have the answer, the fix, the right way. A Jehovah just personally brought me 2 brochures. I explained to him I completely understood his need to believe, to feel he was more correct than others, to have purpose in his life, to feel safe in his encompassing story line. I also explained that my version of fitness served all the same needs as his religion. And my stomach was flatter. [Just kidding – I did not say that.]
My point is exclude nothing! Of course focus and have preferences. We each have limited time and energy each day and must chose what to do with it.
For instance, my facebook has conspiracy theorists, bible thumpers, foodies, great big happy people, agile one arm bar muscle up experts, book worms and video game addicts that have jars to postpone restroom runs.
Everyone is intricate and fascinating. Politics is a dynamic between opposing and centric views. I do think murder and genocide and assassination are best minimized. Realistically even the Huxtables and Jello Chocolate pudding eventually have a downside.
So lets be real.
Your mental agility at incorporating or blending your frame of reference is the way to never have any fence! [What?] The grass is greener on the other side of the fence? I say, the grass is the same color on any side of the fence because YOU are there.
The glass is completely full. It contains liquid and gas and is a solid itself. Change the temperature and you can freeze it all or create steam. Wanting to dismiss any portion of reality is just simple minded and hopeless fantasy. True, we can only handle so much at once. Denial of the rest is a terrible error.
The most devastating punishment in most peoples lives is what they believe they should be or should have or should have been treated. It makes people feel jilted, offended, robbed, invisible, inferior. Ex partners that behaved incorrectly, lost money, missed opportunities. We pine and cry and suffer endlessly over loss and unfairness, what we believe are imperfections or inequities.
Because there is so much going on and so many of us, march on dealing with new inventions and twists and turns everyday – just about anything can happen.
So see opportunity all around you and dismiss nothing or anyone. Yes focus is crucial. Any thought that something should never have happened or your unjustly shorted in life probably just needs a bigger step outward.
