Sometimes I find myself in a difficult position.
No, nothing in the sense of a life changing decision.
Just that, some will come home to the same thing. Wake up the next day to relieve the same experiences from the previous day. Tomorrow I'll go to the same job.
Sure, I may eat an apple with lunch instead of an orange. And maybe it might even be Tom, in the cubicle next to mine who just so happens to have a birthday and there might be some cake in the lunch room.
Or, maybe Tom thinks to himself something about it being all pointless. He's stuck in a dead-end job, nobody cares about Tom, sure he has a family but he goes home to the same family, a family with the same faces.
"How was school"
"School was fine"
School was fine, school is always fine. Nothing changes, same conversations around the dinner table about how everything's fine. These conversations take up just enough time for everyone to finish their meals and then leave to their rooms or go watch t.v quietly.
And every time Tom wants something more, maybe a new car - it costs too much. Maybe he wants to travel, but his job wont let him have more than 42 hours of vacation time.
Mortgage is the same. Bills the same. Everything's the same.
Tom will grow to a ripe old age. And he'll think back on his life. There was some good times there, watching his kids grow up, then seeing them maybe once a month, etc.
I do not work in a cubicle, But I do know someone like Tom. I'm not necessarily Tom myself - yet.
I don't fear that someday I will be Tom. I just don't want to know that I am just like Tom.
To anyone that may read this and think that it is an odd post, which I guess it is (but that's why it's in off-topic.) Tell me, how to you break away from the mundane?
