Trends of my life

We tend to base our worries or assumptions about the future on the trends of our lives to this point, don’t we? If I think back and see how many times I may have ventured into a relationship or experience with passion and true conviction, and I compare that to how many times it didn’t work out, or worse, worked out horribly…then I automatically recoil at the thought of starting something that could potentially turn out the same way again. But the idealist in me forces me to look at a new experience or a new relationship as exactly that…something new…unless there is a specific and almost direct link to a past experience, I would be defeating myself before I even start if I judged what is to be, based on what has been.

Unfortunately the spineless amongst us will see these trends in us, and they will make haste to use it to our detriment because they, the spineless ones, will see it as an opportunity to express their own passions through the actions of others, whilst withholding their own to ensure that they are never vulnerable. Such is the pathetic state of those that try to be aloof by being shallow and insincere.
