We all have our favorite things and, well, sometimes we even have stuff we love and want to share, but we are so self-conscious of it, that we end up putting that stuff somewhere else. I am no exception to this rule. I am not ashamed of the things I love, and I want to share them. But I am self-aware that it might be taken.
I had a friend tell me that whenever she finds a new object or piece of art, she wants to give it away to someone else. She just doesn’t want to feel like she’s giving away her most treasured possession to someone who didn’t deserve it. I totally get that. I’m self-aware enough that there’s no reason not to share my love for these objects with someone who deserves it. I don’t have to feel bad about it.
I feel bad about it. I dont want my art to be taken. But I have to learn to deal with it. It’s not a choice.
I think if we could learn to deal with the fact that were not giving away our most treasured possessions to someone who didnt deserve it, we’d all be much happier.
No I dont think so. But I do think we should feel bad about it, but at least we should be able to deal with it. We should not need to feel bad about it, because there are other people who don’t have access to these things, so it just doesnt make sense. I dont see how that helps us deal with it.
I think it’s fair to say that many of the things we have in our houses are probably not as treasured as people think they are. I know that I have a few things that are valuable and worth protecting. But I also have some things that are pretty useless, and I have to make sure they’re protected. I feel like I should not feel bad about that, because I know that it’s not something that bothers me.
It’s a little bit like the old saying: “I dont have a treasure. I dont have a gold mine. I dont have a diamond.” It’s like: Yeah, you may have a home, but you don’t really own it.
I recently had a conversation with a guy at work who was extremely wealthy and had everything he could ever want. But when I told him about how much I loved French cuisine, he looked at me like I was crazy. I thought it was a little bit strange, because, after all, I eat a lot of French food. And he said that he couldn’t understand why I would want to protect a bunch of useless things.
This is not the first time that I have noticed a difference in people’s attitudes towards things that are “useless”. When I was a child, I always wanted a camera so that I could take pictures and go on vacation. I wanted a camera so I could take pictures of my friends so that I could have a photo album of them. When I was a teenager, I wanted a video camera so that I could watch the news and see how the world was changing.
The same thing happens to us. We want stuff we can use, or even a camera that enables us to take pictures. Our attitude towards it matters too, so it’s important to ask ourselves why we want the stuff we want.
