Thought Picnic: Learning to ignore the silly things

Where opportunity is not taken

Having license should not equate to being licentious, but that is a maxim too difficult for the practical demands of others, a painful realisation that becomes a situation you live with because of the way things just are.

Spousal levity exhausting allowances without consideration of circumstances that can but are not exploited out of commitment, yet you are damned either way. In a world where trust is a premium and suspicion is cheaper than a bargain, baskets and shopping trolleys are filled with that latter.

Where there are freedoms along with opportunities to act whilst exercising restraint, and this is rarely rewarded by those who are without such freedoms or are never visited by the apparent temptations they not only think others are prone to but surmise others will willingly yield to.

Equanimity and hope

A selfish envious gene would suggest they, given the opportunity might well not endure the need for discipline. In any case, you take it all in the knowledge there is more in it than the immediate. The quest for the perfect is usually taking the good, the bad, and the ugly, with the patience and ability to adapt, to concede, to compliment, and to make the best of what you've got.

There is scope for redemption, pitiable as some reactions might be, time and growth might come to the rescue to give assurance, build confidence, engender maturity, secure stability, and that immutability of standing that nothing can readily displace you. In fact, that is the story of life as it is of relationships. Selah!
