Somewhere in the midst of life and trials…I think I messed up. All the knowledge that I have gained from reading and studying literature, has not prepared me to deal with the reality of life. There is always the notion of what our friends think, our parents think, our church or school or government thinks, there is how we think and then there is the reality of it all….
It is so true: perception and perspective is everything.
But what if our perspective is wrong? What if reality is not the dream that we think it should be. I have a master’s in English, yet the job that pays my bills is an entry level position with no hope of an up-grade. What I really want to do–write–will never amount to anything because my “real” job takes up so much time that very little is left for anything else, even the important things.
What my friends think I do
What my mom thinks I do
What society thinks I do
What publishing companies think I do
What I think I do
What I actually do
