Circles of shame

Our obsession with normality is just unbelievable sometimes.

This shame of being different in a very diverse universe just amazes me! and when all major philosophers have talked and talked about how “change is the only constant” you must agree that the boundaries of human “tolerance” have been broken over and over again all through time, yet why do we get stuck, why do we take a long time to submit to this change, be it whatever. Why do we go to wars for it? Why do we have to be shocked about something or the other?

Moreover, what’s with this shame?

All levels of it, the inner shame, then out of that first circle into friends, then parents & siblings then relatives, then friends of the above, then the whole community, then the whole city, state, country, region and world at large.

Just pick one of the issues, and you will see its somehow stuck at one of those circles!

Sadly, I think we are caught in one circle for any given subject at any given time in our lives.

Just let there time to comprehend, let there be freedom to state your objection, opinion and thought on a subject, just tolerate when you can’t understand nor comprehend.

We are all part of this web called life, and we are all trying to live happily just this once!
