One of the most common phrases repeated in either songs, movies or even just quotes is that we run in circles. Actually it has always attracted me and I had no idea why till time went flying and I found it bigger than what I thought it was, being a circle of family, friends, places or people you know.
It’s a circle of repeated situations starting from the existence of mankind, the world changes, becomes civilized, hi-tech dominates, it’s claimed emotions fade, people get busier by time but the fact remains that the circle is the same.
Parents take care of their kids, they grow older-parents and kids- the role is reversed.
The boy falls in love with a girl, she doesn’t, she starts falling for him, then he’s suddenly out of love.
Kids can’t wait to grow old, they do, they wonder why they wished for it so bad in the first place.
You’re given advice, reject it, time passes, you find out you were wrong. Repeat the mistake.
You take things for granted, be warned, don’t give a single care, you lose it.
You spend so much on food, gain extra weight, spend more money losing that weight.
You work so hard to have money, earn it, spend it, start over.
People let you down, wonder how in the world could they do so, you let others down, believe you’re not as bad.
You share a secret, it’s no more secret.
Some see it karma, I never believed so. I believe that you’ll experience what most of others have, being good or bad, and you will definitely do the same for people. We all leave our mark on others.
What I’m saying is that it’s not about returning to where you started but it’s about life repeating itself no matter when or where but those circles will always be recycled till eternity. It’s so impressing how every single person believes he is different, capable of changing basic definitions, has this unique sense of understanding the world.
To me it’s a big circle holding inside it a tight set of circles, smaller ones, some of which are strongly bound, others hollow inside, else broken and scattered between other circles. They do have one thing in common, it’s YOU the common thread that can link them all together just perfectly like no one else. It’s your life, your circle of life and no one can decide on how to link them together like you do.
