The Vicious Circle Of Life

Updated on April 24, 2010

The Honest Truth

Here is something to think about, I notice that we do this more and more with out realizing.

When we were children at school all we ever wanted was to be older so we could have more freedom and escape from the teachers we loved to hate. But then now that were older we wish we were younger again and away from the reality we are in, its a complete vicious circle I find as we wish we could start again some times. Unfortunately life is not a rehearsal and we have to make do with what we have got and try to move on. Sometimes you may think about your childhood with out realizing when your in a sticky situation thats when the vicious circle happens and reality sets in.

Another scenario we tend to do with out realizing is when we are busy doing something such as cooking or tidying up and then in our minds we are thinking about something else or distracted by someone talking to you and you find yourself not concentrating on the job at hand, I do this sometimes with funny consequences like the other day when I was thinking about work and trying to make a cup of coffee and I put the milk in the cupboard and the coffee jug in the fridge, when i realized what I had done I felt so stupid. 

Or how about running up the stairs to get something and then having to come back down because you have forgotten what you went for, as embarrassing as it sounds we are all victims of these scenarios and then reality really does take effect. 

The vicious circle is the most annoying part of life I find because you feel that your never going to win it and the hardest part is that its you who has made the vicious circle inside, we are all our own worst enemies and criticize ourselves constantly without realizing what we are doing.

I find that as long as I have my sense of humor and can laugh at my self when I do silly things like the scenarios above it makes my circle a little easier to deal with, however that might not be the case for you but its something to think about. 

Good luck with your circles and scenarios.

      You - are - so - right about going into a room and wondering why the hell you're there. It doesn't get any better with age, let me tell you!

      But we have to laugh about it - the giggles are just below the surface as I write!

      Well observed Hub, as always, Callum.
