I was discussing about the requirement to be expressive with apt examples in all aspects of life. Check out the previous blogs here https://writeforpleasure.wordpress.com/2012/08/01/mind-and-its-need-for-illustration-the-beginning/ and https://writeforpleasure.wordpress.com/2012/08/01/mind-and-its-need-for-illustration-the-intermediate/. The discussion is about gifts and being more open with material exchange to display feelings or strength. The gift element again is an issue for many individuals right from price to the purchased item or the label.
Comparison is one strong enemy for the helpless victims of illustrative relations. He got me this and you got me that! Well the thought process that led to this outcome was 100% different from the other. If only more time was spent on the real deal than the nick knacks it would be a lot easier for us to sustain and prosper.
Show how much more you can offer as compared to the other person. In case you pay higher than that one I will stay with you. I have this brand product it is known to be the best out there. If this all doesn’t drive you crazy there is more to it. Out of sight out of mind, that is one more aspect we got to fight tooth and nail when we are existing. Illustrate that you are a friend. Invite others over, go to their place and hang out. Keep in touch; that is really the oxygen for relationships. If you miss few years of life all the old memories just possibly vanishes. There is no record of your identity if you choose to go on a world trip without a Facebook update or mention to others.
That really is sad, as it could be tiring and impossible to keep track of every person in your life. Make sure they visit you and get along. This virtual world is adding to all the trouble. My cousin is just twelve and she has already changed her email ID more than 5 times. One of my friends probably got a hacked account and so she lost all the contact. Now I am clueless how to get to her, as email and phone number is all we had for communication.
This is not just repulsive technology, but adversity. Now you have to call and confirm the right email address then pass the message. Phones will be gone soon and you will virtually run around only with internet based profiles and numbers. Possibly even name would not matter. Names could be repetitive, but the smart software algorithm generated numbers would be totally unique.
Virtual cards don’t matter as they are based on universal theme. Shopping online is certainly appealing but the stress related to identity theft, shipping charges and long time for returning purchases just keeps people away from it.
So back to my original question, how can you illustrate your true feelings? Being there in times of need, saying ‘I love you’ more often or just popping by often showing you are alive can be sufficient? Would you be yourself and stay away from the universal trends and pressure to get involved in the illustrative chain? I doubt there is a solution to this problem. There are million dollar enterprises running efficiently all based on this need to show and express your thoughts, feelings, potential and calibre in the big bad world.
At every step you will be shown an apt way of doing things, you can either follow the lead or just break the shackles of stereotypes and just leap for a new experience.
