There was a time when I did believe that there was a choice when it came to matters of of a social buildup. That we could choose to be part of a group or not, to feel lonely or not. However that time is long past…there comes a time when we realize that choice isn’t without a certain predisposition to our plight. A certain…boundary we start out with.
It is by that logic that makes us see only what we have experienced before. As such, those that have never truly lived their lives of loneliness believe they have a choice to say in their matters because it is what they can see. Just as those that lived their lives in solitude have the opinion that having friends is something that comes with great difficulty.
Being in a relationship whether friend or love is more often than not a two way plight. We have to ask ourselves, how much of what we believe reflects the situation of others? Just because we are in that situation, does not mean others are in it too. While we are the same being…each of us has lived our lives differently from others.
Could a person that can relate to people easily enough see through the eyes of someone who spent the early part lives locked indoors alone? Could a person who walked alone for most their lives see the simplicity in walking in the company of people? How much different does a person have to be to be considered different enough to be overlooked by society in general?
Truth is we are creatures trained out of the need to follow the middle route. That is the most acceptable path in order for society to exist on such a large scale. As such, minority classes of thought whether good or bad are often overlooked or scorned by society because the majority is unable to accept or see their point of existance. It is such that these individuals are forced to walk alone, making the choices they make because all roads will eventually lead them to the path they inevitably walk…
Whether good or bad…they are individuals out there that truly walk alone not because they made a choice to do so, but society chose to cut them off because they uphold the true sense of uniqueness and individuality which they are not accepted for. Individuals who fight the fight for the stubborn principles they hold highly…
Even if they are the ones that help protect society from themselves.
In the end, can such individuals find their peace within society? Well, to me that’s something that takes a great deal of patience and understanding on both sides. It’s something that will start to bridge the gap between those that feel normal and those that feel left out. Just one thing though…
It’s also something that will take a long time to come.
