3 Days, 3 Quotes Challenge, Day 2

Huhuu! It´s me again. Welcome to the second day of my 3 Days, 3 Quotes Challenge.

And as yesterday, I´d like to give my hugging thanks to The Web Weavers for tagging me to take part in this little bundle of fun.


 

RULES

  • Nominate 3 different bloggers for each day

 

Nothing´s changed. I still feel awkward doing this but here I am…. willing to give it my best shot. Let´s do this  * cracking knuckles *


 

`Those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.` 

_ Friedrich Nietzsche

The reason I picked this quote is because it suits me. Plus, I have it tattooed below my shoulder-blade. It´s meaningful for me.

Figuratively it means that people don´t understand a person´s motivations, their actions or their choices. They judge a person for their behavior and think of them to be irrational ( among many other things ). And what happens when people don´t understand? They often reject the things they can´t comprehend.

Not that I´ve been rejected. But I have been told that my behavior is abrasive, that I can´t see beyond my own point of view. I´ve been called arrogant and many other questionable things online and offline by people who refused to have a listen to the music I danced to. But that´s fine. I don´t expect understanding. My confidence is mistaken for arrogance. My abrasive side is just me being straight forward. Take it or leave it, you know? I´m misunderstood on a daily basis but that´s fine. I´m alive. I´ll continue to live. Just as all the people will survive even  though they can´t hear the awesome stuff I´m listening to.


I´m tagging….

 

Until tomorrow, my dear bookish Padawans ❤ Mucho love.

    1. Oh I feel you regarding the work bit. But i think its a wonderful trait to have! I 😊 youre safe in my book. My straight forwardness has been mentioned at work parties, colleague dinners, etc. 🙈 i can imagine how you feel in those moments. In private, though, ( with parents from my daughter’s school friends) it’s not received that well. 😒 I once told a soccer mom ( who’s ALWAYS stressed out but keeps volunteering to bake for school events and stuff, despite the added stress ) that everyone is responsible for their own happiness. If she’s stressed but keeps adding stuff to her plate then it’s her own fault and she shouldn’t complain. Hubby now goes to parent meetings. 🤷🏼‍♀️

        1. 😂 Some? You mean a lot of people don’t like the truth. Bah, you know, I wouldn’t have said anything to that mom if she were truly stressed. But when you get a 30 minute run down on what they have to do all day, every day, and some items on her mental check list include getting nails done, hair done, taking the dog to the groomers so it can get it’s hair combed, etc.. you mentally start fishing out the important from the non important stuff and realize some people are full of shit 🙊🙈 it’s not a matter of judging someone.. It’s more of a personal survival matter.
