Familiarity breeds contempt. ' The only normal people are the ones you don't know very well.' How true...How many people in our lives do we wholeheartedly respect for who they are? And how many of those are a vital part of our lives, people we know inside out? Why do we always admire people who are at a distance, on some distant stage, all the while turning a blind eye to the possibly even greater qualities those close to us have struggled to imbibe?? Why Why Why?? Its insane. Its plain stupidity. Its contempt. They say a little knowledge can be dangerous, a whole lot can be even more! What do you call something that dissolves your admiration, respect for the people who have been with you through most part of your life, and will continue to be there throughout?? Well, DANGEROUS. Contempt feeds on inner happiness. It lives on your peace of mind. Why do we find ourselves digressing from the train of thought of the very people who contribute to the making of US? In whatever way. Its not justified. I despise the saying I started off with. Because its true. Its real. And reality bites. Real hard.
Life would be a lot more smoother if we learnt to turn around that reality. Make sure we keep the worm of contempt out of our minds, make sure it doesn't blend into our persona. How comfortable do you feel with a person with contempt brewing inside?? It'll spew forth sooner or later, for all you know, in an ugly way.
'To be trusted is a bigger compliment than to be loved.' Familiarity is a blessing. Lets keep it that way.
