A story is worth a thousand words, but only one thing in the end matters. Perception. Perception, a word used so often, but understood so rarely. It is taken so lightly, but is so strong that it can change a life as you see it now. Saying you understand it, well, most of the times that’s bullshit! Because who the hell understands what you’re saying if they can’t see it through your eyes?
You may paint a picture in their mind, but no one else will ever see it as you see it until they see a physicality attached to it. They might even connect to where your perception and imagination is taking you, but they’ll never see the depth of what you’re trying to say. The point of stating all this…you don’t need someone’s opinion if they can’t really see what you’re seeing. No one should tell you what to do or what to be. If they haven’t been through your stage, then what’s the point of trying to make them see?
Why do we search satisfaction in someone else if it exists within us? You may connect with people, you may hold the same perceptions, but what they’ll never be, is you. Or what you’ll never be is them. So why do we waste time trying to make someone else happy if it’s not what they think should factor in. Because isn’t it what we are doing? Putting their opinion above our own? Why is it so hard for us to just believe? Believe in what we are, in what we want, and how we see things? In the end you’ll become what you think, because that is the only thing you’ll be willing to put effort into. No effort is painless, and no pain is worthless. The end, however, is mostly seen as effortless.
