One of my ALL time favourites! So often we try to mould and bend and break so that a person fits our idea of how we think they SHOULD be. In the beginning of a new encounter with someone, the relationship is stress-free as there are no expectations...three months down the line suddenly you're pissed off with this person because you have created an idea of what you think this person should be to suit YOUR needs. It's selfish. Allow people to be who they are, fully. If they do not meet your expectations that is your fault, not theirs because you put the expectations there.
"To wait patiently for a person to become of different character is completely futile. You will waste your life hoping the lion will take up piano so you can dance. Wake up. Free the lion to find a lioness and go find yourself a musician".
How I see it...
I see, speak and write in metaphors because I feel there is much we can learn from nature, people and our surroundings as depicted in my photographs and why I enjoy sharing my thoughts. Not in any attempt to convince or convert you to my way of thinking, seeing or feeling but to share how I see and experience MY mind map of the world. You at no time have to agree, all I ask is that my views and the views of others who wish to express theirs are kindly respected. So relax, get comfy and just enjoy. Happy reading!
