Theres a reason why we sweep our dirt under the rug or in the corner. Theres a reason why some things are just better left unsaid. Heres why i think we sweep our dirt under the rug : Because we’re scared. Not scared of dirt, No. Ofcourse not. But our dirt represents our secrets. Our problems. Our mistakes. Our skeletons. The rug, however represents, well just a rug. we hide our problems and all our skeletons where no-one can find them. we hide them all under a rug. we hide them wherever we can hide them. Skeletons in a closet. Dirt under a rug. Monsters under the bed. we hide them because we just don’t want to deal with them. Not now. not later. because dealing with them now or later, will bring back all the monsters, the secrets, Everything. and as humans, we’ll try our best to avoid things that will trigger these situations. Because we’re all runners. well at least I am. And no matter how many times, I’ve been told not to run. I can’t. most of the time. I can’t listen. So I run. And bury. and run again. It’s a cure. Isnt it? Even if the disease, will probably come back and kill you, at least you would have been alive yesterday. Because, in the end,isn’t that what matters more? That you lived ‘for the day’? Isn’t that what we all want to live by?? ‘Live like it’s your last day”, they tell you. Over and over again. You hear the same thing. But how many people have you actually met that live like it their last day? There’s a reason they don’t. So its natural that people quote it more than they actually do it. Practise what you preach. It’s a common lie.
There’s a reason. There’s always a reason. It’s cause we’re all scared. Even when we don’t want to be.
