Before reading my post, make sure you read Sana’s post titled “Conversation” on eleven eleven.
For a post titled “Conversation”, I feel that there was quite a bit of emphasis on dreams as well. Especially with regards to how the beauty of dreams is that they seem so out of grasp, and thus seem more beautiful. However, I will be focusing more on the topic of conversations in this post.
Conversations. Verbal interactions with those around you. The topic of discussion is sometimes trivial, sometimes work-related, sometimes nothing but pointless gossip… rarely is it a truthful exchange of what each person is feeling.
It could be due to one’s fear of how the other may react that they decide not to share how they are feeling… or it could simply be one’s inability to do so. Either way, conversations, in reality, become nothing but superficial and meaningless. We come to hate how calculated each and every person’s words are. As if words that leave one’s mouth is always something that must bring benefits to himself or herself. Or at the very least, not put one in a tight spot.
As we watch characters in various entertainment mediums such as TV shows and books do what they want to do and say what we want to say, we come to hate reality even more. We wish that we could interact with others the way the characters do in fiction. Acting truthfully, speaking honestly and just being real without fearing what others would think.
“Conversations should be more than just an exchange of words. They should be an exchange of emotions.”
However, we may have become too used to putting up a front and saying what others want to hear. Perhaps, we can no longer explain how we truly feel and what we want to do adequately enough for others to understand… If someone could understand without a proper explanation, it would truly be a dream that is too good to be true.
Sorry for a shorter post than usual. Hopefully, those of you who read my post still find some meaning in it. Or perhaps, do you prefer my posts to be shorter like this? Or do you prefer my longer and slightly more elaborate posts?
What is your take on conversations? Have you had a long and good conversation with someone close to you recently? Have you been able to convey your emotions to those closest to you?
