Many people I have worked with have, time and again, referred to my perspective as the delusion of some utopia only I inhabit.
Whenever I’m told this, I just laugh because I understand it is merely a consequence of perspective.
The best way I can describe this is that there is a difference between being of the lighter things in life and peering at life’s dark walls and corners with fear of the unknown and growing up and knowing the details of the dark corners while looking at the light as something you cannot enter.
The lighter things of life were something of a dream for me as a child to experience one day, to live a life of comfort that isn’t constantly focused on the struggle of making it to next week or surviving to the next paycheck.
I wanted to stand in the light but relegate myself to the corners constantly because it is all I know.
