Get Real

Uncategorized

Here’s a common phrase: “I’m just realistic”.
And usually it’s meant to justify a certain degree of cynicism, as though this “reality” of yours is all that is. We all think we’re agreeing on the same reality. But we’re not. My reality is worlds different from many others’ realities. Sooo… am I realistic? Yep. Are you realistic? Likely. If you’re calibrating your thoughts, actions, and assumptions by your own concept of reality— which you inevitably are— then you’re realistic. Right? I guess if you were purposefully acting counter to your concept of reality then you wouldn’t be realistic. Feasible. 
But the more I think about it the less this category “realistic” means to me. But the more you think about a lot of things the less it means. Like when you say the word “door”
Door
Door
Door
Door
Door
Door
Door
Door
Door
Door
DOOR
WTF?!
It looks so strange! It means nothing! There’s a D!
And then a DOUBLE O!
Like EYES peering into your sOuL!
And then an… anti… climactic… r. 

So, to all you “realists”… make like a door and kindly shut it. ;)
