Finally someone put my thoughts into words

"Maybe I've been in love with what I thought a person was in my head, that image I made them out to be, but not actually with how that person actually was in real life. Love is complicated and such an abstract thought."

Finally! Someone was taken what I believe to be true, and put it into the words I couldn't find. Let me finally put it out there. My view on love. Every guy, and every girl, has the perfect person pictured in their head. But this person only exists inside the walls of their mind. And nobody stands a chance against these figments. But every once and awhile, someone is lucky enough to find the closest thing to their figment. And this person shows them attributes that they start to enjoy more than their figment's. But the sad thing, a person isn't perfect, and also has attributes that are bad. And that's where things turn ugly. Mature people understand that there's give and take in the world. That you're not going to find your figment, but you will find some pretty amazing people. Immature people don't take this into account, and "fall in love" until the ugly comes out, and then it's on to the next one. Because as you get older, that figment becomes faded and adaptable, but when you're young that figment is fresh and stubborn.

**Quote from Megan Rochelle Iselin**

Insane

"Albert Einstein Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."

I was once told a story about actions, and their relations to sticks. Think of every action you make as the end of one stick. By picking up the end of a stick, you also pick up the other end, or the consequence. Not all consequences are bad. They're just the following event. The effect to your cause. But you can't pick up the top of one stick, and get the end of another. You will always receive the same effect for the same cause.
But people, me included, tend to believe that this will change. But we will always be let down by the fact that this is not the case. We will drive ourselves insane expecting different results. This is when we realize how trusting and forgiving we are. But we need to change that, or we're only hurting ourselves.
Don't expect the worst of people right off the bat, but don't keep forgiving someone if they've continually let you down. Don't be rude about it either, but just know that they're not the most trustworthy of people. Be kind to others, but not so kind that you start to hurt yourself. "...you can't better anybody else unless you're where you wanna be."



*disclaimer* People may think this is about one person in particular, but rest assured, that even if one person threw me off the edge and made me want to blog, doesn't mean they're the only one. I can make a list if they want.

My view on time

You know those people who spend too much Time in the past. The dwell on a mistake they made, or on the last good feeling they had, pretending that it's the last event in which they could ever be happy. It doesn't make sense. Time is rushing past you, and they're stuck dwelling. They're not the funnest people to be around, and occasionally can be the annoying people at the party, that can't stop talking about the past.
Or what about the people who want to grow up so bad that they don't sit and see the good memories they're missing out on. The same people who focus only on college, then career, then family, and don't see the Time of the moment. And you can't get them to calm down for two seconds, because they're so wrapped up in something they believe to be certain, but in reality isn't.

Because let's face it, Time's best friends are Spontaneity and Patience. Time tests how long you can wait for something, and also challenges you with trials thrown in your face. But if you're so focused on Time that is non-existent yet, then how can you be prepared for Time's trial. People who are in the past can't handle the trial because they're still dwelling on the last problem, making this new problem a bigger deal then it already is. People who are running for the future, aren't prepared, because they've already passed any problems in their mind. Everything is childish, because they're more mature than anyone, because they're "tasted the future and know how to act". But people who forgive and forget the past, and aren't in any hurry, can take on any trial, because they don't have anything else they're worrying themselves with. Spontaneity is they're best friend as well.

Time is the most precious substance in the world. More valuable than diamonds, oil, or even the fictional unobtanium. Once it's been used, you may never get it back. Choose carefully how you use Time. People see Time as different types of resources.
Inexhaustible: Because Time is always going. It will never stop going.
Reusable: Because you can always remember memories at the least, if not remake events of Time
Non-reusable: Time can not be recreated. No matter how hard you try.

Time is very generous and very selfish. It gives itself to everyone in the world. Sometimes it gives more to some than others. It tricks the mind into thinking that it speeds up and slows down. How you use Time is up to you in the end, but keep in mind how precious it is. Use the amount of Time you're given wisely, because no one knows how much Time is willing to give itself to you. Spend Time on things you enjoy, and in the trials that Time throws at you, make sure you handle well, and with actions that won't waste Time later.

"Cause times change and there's no one to blame
Even when the day is leavin
Will you rise like a lion in the morning sun
Or will you just lay there bleeding"

from a friend's status

"The Wind is the Moon's Imagination. Wandering, it seeps through cracks, ripples the grass, explores the unknown. My Love is my Soul's imagination. How do I love you? Imagine."-Saul

Only kind of love I believe in. This is not meant to be said when appropriate, in fact the most inappropriate of times would be best. It's unprovoked. It's not expected. It's true. Unlike the fake love that is infecting the world today.

Let me explain me view on love. Do I think it has ever been possible to fall in love within a week? Yes. Do I think it's possible nowadays? No. Love has been commercialized. Like sex. You can buy sex, and in essence, you can buy love, putting a value on it, making it another thing people can make a profit on. Love is then able to be commercialized, and shown into drastic forms, and people will buy it. But this product is something everybody wants. People will try and emulate it. And what happens when people try to make something better, that was already perfect? It declines because people would rather have the cheap version that requires no effort, then work hard for something that will bring endless joy.

So do I believe in love? Yes. Do I believe that's it's easy to get, and that it's available to lazy teenagers, and people with no time to put into it? No.
