Out of Tune

It’s been a while since I came to my blog without a plan. I have no topics in mind, and I honestly don’t know what to share with you. Isn’t it funny? How as life goes on and as we grow older, we forget how to just open up and share about how we really feel. We think ahead and try to be so considerate about others that we forget how to just do what we want. I remember that as a kid, I loved raising my hand and getting called out to the front of the classroom; I loved the attention. But as I grew older, I stopped; I was afraid that I’ll embarrass myself with the wrong answers and getting judged as a nerdy keen kid. 

What has school and education turned us into? Machines that are tuned into the same frequency so that we can all do the same things and live according to the script that has been prepared for us? What about growth? What about the space that we are capable of creating but doesn’t exist yet? We are so confined in the role prepared for us that we forgot how to be our true selves. Instead of saying that we need to “think outside of the box,” shouldn’t we be finding a way to remove the box entirely instead? Why waste our time and energy stepping outside of the box every time we need a new idea? How foolish are we.

To the obedient machines that are still well intact with the system, I’m glad that you are well and I wish you all the best. I’m jealous that you don’t have to think of the endless doors that our out-of-tune minds can open. It seems really fun but it gets really stressful and confusing most of the time. I’m not saying that any of us has it better, we’re just wired differently. Let’s see what we can do to make the best out of our roles together alright? I don’t mind playing an extra in your life if it makes your life more fun and interesting. After all, the out-of-tune ones are always the protagonist-turn-hero in all futuristic robot and clone movies. ?

Honestly, I have no idea how this rant came about but I love how it turned out. Till our next one, good night!
