I wrote this years and years ago. It does not reflect my current state of mind ….
Here’s a Shakespearean dialogue: This world is a brothel and all the people in it are whores. Everyone has his or her price. Some of them have their stakes high; some are low. But eventually, every one of them sooner or later … bows down to pressure from the string-pullers.
Most of the people are too quick to make decisions – decisions based on shaky, treacherous assumptions. Old memories, old connections, ancient bond are brushed off like dust settled on a body tired after an exhausting journey.
Ego is important – YES! But when the time comes that it actually starts being a nuisance between you and the people you love, it is dangerous. It eats away everything, every feeling you have … every feeling you MIGHT have. And all you are left with is the overwhelming stubborn mindset: not to give in.
People betray you, they always will. It’s like a universal constant that will always stay by your side. But when the people you are counting on, blindly hanging on to with an impregnable faith leave you alone to face the music, who do you look for help?
Maybe it’s not bad being alone. Maybe it’s a better option. My business remains my business and I don’t meddle into others’. Maybe that is the way to go about your life. And if it’s a challenge – I can prove I can stay alone AND buoyant. I don’t agree with Pearl Jam. I have lost my faith cuz it’s an inside job today!
