THEY WHO?

You know, I keep hearing this THEY a lot. We seem to live our lives like puppets always concerned about what THEY say, or what THEY do, or what THEY want. Who the hell are THEY? Have you ever thought about that? This THEY has been sculpting our world, at least up to the point of this post I hope.

What about that beautiful woman walking in those 6 inch stilettos, walking ever so cautiously, as not to trip over and kiss the asphalt. Why isn’t she saying to herself–“what the hell am I doing with these godforsaken shoes on?” “They are uncomfortable as hell and they’re killing my ankles.” And how about that man, the fathead with all the muscle? How big is BIG? Why isn’t he asking him self, “what am I trying to accomplish”, especially if he’s not an actor or competitor? What’s his purpose? What’s hers? You’ve guessed it, it’s all about becoming a part of the infamous group called THEY, and the hell with individualism.

Well I love being an Individual and I say the hell with THEY!. I’m like that fork that you use on your dinner plate, I will poke and pick aside the garbage and consume what I want, and so should you. Just a thought which came to me after reading a phrase from Gestalt Therapy Verbatim, by Fritz Perls, and it goes:

I do my thing and you do your thing. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, And you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you, and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, its beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped. (Fritz Perls, “Gestalt Therapy Verbatim”, 1969).

  1. Nice post. It strikes a chord because I have been trying,sometimes successfully sometimes not, to live my life according to the Gestalt way ever since I learned about it in college. Because life is too short to waste on what THEY think.

  2. What if he’s working out because he’s an enthusiast or she’s wearing six inch heels because she likes looking good just for herself. Hell there are people who dress up even when they’re not going out because it makes then feel good. Who are you to condemn these people and ironically, judge them, for being and looking their best. Perhaps as individuals physical fitness or fashion is a big part of they’re lives. This was not a clearly thought out post and its sad to see this judgemental attitude creep into a post that is fighting the very idea.

    • By no means am I critisizing anyone. That was not the intent. I think you missed the message. I m only suggesting that people think and question, and that’s all. If you feel great do it. By no means am I the authority. So with that said, I agree with you fully, it’s your life. Thanks for the comment..😃

      • Well that’s not a problem. And thank you for the comments. But, again, I think you just misunderstood the post, and that’s ok. That’s the wonderful thing about blogs. You can post your ideas and then allow your audience to validate or destroy. You brought up some great points though, but that was just skating on the surface. You gotta dig deeper…😊
