“Listen carefully to what people are not saying, while analyzing your excessive analyzing in life.
Rather tell them how much they matter to you, not because they won’t be here one day, but because they are here now, with their present silence and their tacit deeds.”
There are times when I leave social situations feeling like I’ve talked too much in a group of people, or I was too loud, too sarcastic, or saying something with a lack of empathy. Maybe it was caused by not thinking before speaking…it is individual, but realizing all of that when it is just too late.
Sometimes I am leaving while wishing I’ve said more nice things or maybe having a more positive attitude wouldn’t be a waste too. It was always a mystery for me, how do other people speak fluidly or tell their stories so gracefully? I consider myself being messy, hungry, actually swearing a lot, but most of the times starting my sentences without knowing where the hell they’ll end.
Sometimes I’m thinking that time and silence are two most luxurious things. At one point,it is better to be silent at some situations, even though it is not in your true nature. Anyway, you are going to learn it all on your way through life, while growing up, enlightened from your mistakes.
And time? Sometimes the best friend but also a worst enemy. It really depends on the individual sight of a person. But you already know all of that.
Because every word has consequences. Every silence too.
So, keep that on mind.
P.s: Thinking about it all while watching this, even more confusing for me.
“If there were a little more silence, if we all kept quiet…maybe we could understand something.”
Silence. Sitting. Thinking.
If you are scared of what’s gonna come next, don’t be. Allow the scare to lead you to unexplored places of your mind. Because this is bravery, to go to the place which is unknown for you. Let your mind and heart lead the way to those places where the weather is changeable and anything can happen. But still, don’t waste your time with regretting of you going there. That’s your own path towards the place you have always wanted to visit. Do it because you want to and need to at the same time. The place is not gonna be the same as the other places in this world. If you feel that you are gonna fuck up and it really happens, just close your eyes, breathe deeply and simply go back, retrace your steps and start again with knowing exactly which action was wrong. Don’t just waste you time staring at the brick wall like an idiot, because maybe you were born for this exact silent moment. Don’t waste it.
