Kaleidoscope

12 Jul

kaleidoscope
A child, reaching into an oversized toy box, searching and digging for the best toy for that moment. The toy that is most interesting, the toy that all the other kids will reach for in jealousy. The five minute attention holding toy. And so it happens, wrapping fingers around the long fat tube, pulling through all the other playful obscurities. A child holds this thing in the air as if its a victorious find. One small hole to look through, and on the other end different shapes. Looking through the kaleidoscope the child sees different shapes and colors. Turning it to see more shapes and colors. Discovering the changes in what is viewed as it is moved, shaken and turned.
Know any people like that?

Some people waver with whichever way they are shaken, turned, or moved. Affectionately known as FAIR WEATHER FRIENDS. These people are definitely seasonal. I know a girl who took on the personality of whomever she was dating. She drank champagne with her drunken boyfriend, saved souls while dating a minister, shaved her head and embraced her natural self when dating the Muslim. As a married woman will her husband even know who he married? I’m sure she will take on his personality.

This leads me to think of those surrounding us who don’t have a personality of their own. All of your thoughts are their thoughts. All of your opinions are their opinions. These people are difficult to detect at first, they seem to have the potential to be a really good friend. It starts out because you both seem to have so much in common, not knowing they are just agreeing with everything, liking everything, seemingly desperate for a friend. Call me crazy but I like friends I can learn from, friends who experience life slightly different than myself so that I can be exposed to things outside of my norm. I like having friends that I can have healthy discussions and debates with, knowing our difference of opinion or views won’t affect our friendship.

All “Yes Men” exit stage left.

Just a lil of the TRUTH…
