Is It Normal Our Love Is Vengeance?

Jan 10, 2019

This post was inspired by one of my favorite song called “Behind Blue Eyes” from The Who. He is surprised his love is vengeance and it’s never free.

Anyone familiar with sports will talk to you about rivalry and vengeance. Is it just a matter of troubles and pressure then? What happens when you win the match?

You don’t know what you got until you lose it and freedom is something we all experienced, lost sometimes, found again maybe. But it might be an illusion to think ourselves as free men and women.

The original sin is always lurking and nobody fully agrees about it. Some religion even don’t think about it. After all, we are animals, aren’t we? This might be true but what sets us apart from animals is something very simple: self-criticism.

I should have learned to play the guitar; I should have learned to play them drums.

A Good Education On The Subject Of Fight

If our love is always vengeance, then maybe it’s time to find another person who needs revenge. It’s not shocking that vengeance and rivalry is everywhere: even in the workplace.

If you want or need freedom, then maybe you should remember that you could end up all alone. When I think of freedom, I always remember the movie Braveheart where Mel Gibson shouts “freedom” while being tortured.

Is there a reason for living with a broken heart? Who is to blame for those feelings? We got some people calling love hate! (can you relate?) If you have a good education, then you will remember none of us are free because one of us is chained.

They are hearing voices (ridiculous voices). Marilyn Monroe used to say it’s better to be ridiculous than boring. But sometimes you can’t help but wonder what’s the meaning of that troubling pressure!

Who Knows What It’s Like To Feel That Way?

Who is to blame for that wonderful record collection? I started listening to music at a young age and quickly I was amazed by how it soothed all the heartaches I was witnessing. Some might say it helped too much because there are some heartaches that shouldn’t be allowed.

What a wicked game to make me feel this way! I got the dreamer’s disease and I’m age 14. When I was a child I already knew lots of things; how come today my nephew who is 12 is reading “The Count of Monte Cristo”?

The book is an adventure novel by French author Alexandre Dumas (père) completed in 1844. It is one of the author’s most popular works, along with The Three Musketeers. The story takes place in France, Italy, and islands in the Mediterranean during the historical events of 1815–1839: the era of the Bourbon Restoration through the reign of Louis-Philippe of France. It begins just before the Hundred Days period (when Napoleon returned to power after his exile).

Bright Futures and Rear View Mirrors

The historical setting is a fundamental element of the book, an adventure story primarily concerned with themes of hope, justice, vengeance, mercy, and forgiveness. It centres on a man who is wrongfully imprisoned, escapes from jail, acquires a fortune, and sets about exacting revenge on those responsible for his imprisonment. His plans have devastating consequences for both the innocent and the guilty.

What happens to those who feel they’ve been wronged? What happens to those who feel they’ve been robbed of beautiful years? What happens to those unable to identify a war or a fight?

Is it East versus West or man against man? Who likes to be alone? After all, sometimes loneliness is cool because you can concentrate on certain things!

It Seems It Will Be In Our Eyes

As a conclusion, if you wonder if it’s normal to experience feelings of freedom or hyperactivity, let’s remember that our eyes won’t lie because it’s the mirror of the soul. You will break some mirrors and you will be tempted to be a “good girl gone bad”.

If wisdom is telling where you are between two extremes, then one should remember to carefully choose those extremes. Sometimes finding words is not easy and a climate is much more relaxing. It could be a dominant idea like “beware of those who peak to early”.

One day maybe we will all be famous: me and the readers of this blog. I already had some glory moments in the past and I must say it’s an awesome feeling. But the pressure and trouble to have a standard of performance is exhausting.
