I met someone without a soul…
How does a person without a soul look like…?
Like me, you and everyone around you. It’s hard to pin point the exact details of a person without a soul. You see, the soul, can be disguised but it appears in so many small things such as a smile, a gesture, an understanding, holding a hand, being able to see…
A person who has everything and yet want more! That’s greed, of course, but this isn’t it. It wants to take everything you have and leave you behind completely destroyed with nothing. This may not be an apparent feature of a person without a soul at first sadly; it’s most recognised when it’s way too late or if ever…
The person I met was nice at first. We had spent some time together and it was nice indeed. However, I couldn’t pin point what was actually wrong. We would get into serious discussions over various subjects such as love, dating and friendship. I would always say the heart and soul that matters. My friend would say that “thing” doesn’t exist.
It would state the reasons such as people only get married for three reasons only: family (wanting a family; or through family pressure), money (either side gains substantial income), status (improve social status). This view is depressing! I couldn’t believe people would only get married for these reasons. I am a romantic at heart and I believe in love.
At that time it killed my idea of marrying for love. But I secretly believed people do get married for love. I got married for love and with love. I couldn’t be happier. A fiend of mine, on the other hand, has serious issues with the marriage. Children are involved too. I don’t think that person loves the partner nor the children. The calculating reasons for getting married ends up like that, of course.
When you have it all and you want to spend your free time away from your created family it breaks my heart. When people live separate lives under the same roof for the sake of the children or society or parents. I know quite a few people who do that. I am not a judge here. I am a mere observer. For me, this is a third world when people have it all and complain about it.
So many people would love to have what my friend has…! She has two children, a house a husband maybe a cat and a dog.. A life most people aspire to achieve. And yet is not happy. Although I don’t necessarily think happiness is it. I can understand once one achieved something they thought they wanted and realised that’s not it. However, don’t bring children into this.
To me, it’s unattractive and I despise people who have it all and complain about their lives. “It’s white people problems” as someone said to me. “White people need to go to Africa to see the poverty to realise how good they have it” as someone said again. I don’t mean to sound racist here but it’s true. I have been to Morocco to the places where there’s nothing.
People don’t have these problems such as my so called friend. People don’t have mid-life crisis neither men nor women. Life is not about you. I believe I am here to serve a purpose and leave a better place behind me that’s it. Life is beautiful, unfair, amazing, devastating, challenging, exciting and what you make of it. Make the best you can and be a good person.
