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.
Until tomorrow, my dear bookish Padawans ❤ Mucho love.
