Unfinished Posts - Part I

I decided it was better to submit something unfinished, that nothing at all. Be ready for massive amounts of rant.

Unfinished Post #1

There are some things that really irritate me and I consider them to be rather wrong. I’m not conservative, but there are limits to human behaviour. Hypocrisy and pretentiousness for instance. It’s interesting to see how some people can go back to past situations so easily without realizing the mistakes they once did. – If you have had a bad experience, why going back to it? Why not learning from it and avoid it? – My answer: masochism or just plain stupidity.

This is meant to be vague for anonymity’s sake. If you feel this describes your current situation, you are probably right.

Unfinished Post #2

Too many questions…
Should we allow ourselves to feel loved, wanted or desired? At the end, we are all just looking for that one person. What sacrifices are considered acceptable to fulfill that dream? Is it a selfish view to look for appreciation elsewhere? Are we all emotionally constricted because of the way we believe human relationships should work? Or is it all so subjective that we unconsciously impose our own rules at the expense of others?

Everything should be simpler as this: People who do not add any emotional value to your life are transitory and disposable. They are gray beings that share the same place you live in – you see them and you’re forgetting about them at the same time.

"The Map is not the territory"

It is used to signify that individual people, in fact, do not in general have access to absolute knowledge of reality, but in fact only have access to a set of beliefs they have built up over time, about reality.

As explained by Neil Gaiman: One describes a tale best by telling the tale. The way one describes a story, to oneself or the world, is by telling the story. It is a balancing act and it is a dream. The more accurate the map, the more it resembles the territory. The most accurate map possible would be the territory, and thus would be perfectly accurate and perfectly useless. The tale is the map that is the territory.
