"The person you think you are, the person people think you are, the person you really are, and the person you want to be.
That's life pretty much summed up right there, and I'm here to do you a favour. In telling you that none of them exist. They're four parts to the simplest of complications that can have no function due to the unforgiving fact that they can never hold value to ever constitute variables added to equate a changing consequence accordingly. If they all did exist, that would make you a hypocrite. But if they don't exist, which take my word for it, they don't; then you're shit out of luck and wasting everybody's space and time.
Lovers? Husbands? Wives? Family? Friends? Sure, if that's what you want to call them. Reality would contend that, inside, they know just as well as you do that you're all merely in mutual agreement on not to call each other out on the lies you live by.
Consider. You had it all mixed up all these years. Enemies are indeed your best friends since they're the only reminder you recieve that you can't fool everybody with juggling between the four potentials. Way I see it, you don't hate your enemies because they don't like you. You hate your enemies because you can't have what they have: seeing you for who you really are: fractions of an unexisting entity. Challenging the sheer consideration of presence, let alone memories and experience.
There is nothing to be proven. It is already known. It's just a matter of how brutally honest one can really be with an imaginative oneself. Consider. The only reason you hold on to all your convictions of the validity and right of a single you, who and what you are, as if you are holding on to dear life, is because you are in fact holding on to dear life. Perspective-based, that is. Hence, reality is a notion that never actually realized in itself."

    all your posts are depressing

  • as ghasheema said its too depressing ... but ur the master of the words -en 9a7 alt3beer- like ur way of expressing ur ideas in an untypical way -for me at least. however as ghasheema a more optimistic - positive post would be nice :)

  • Powerful text Immatwir! Kept me thinking since last night...
    Anyone with an identity/midlife crisis should read this post.Problem solved :-)

  • 7akeema el qalya, mokanech embayen, how are the kids?
    i dont think of what i write as 'depressing', certainly not intended to be at least. sure, it's not happy, but personally i dont think its sad either.. so, since its not 'light' and thats something we can agree on, how about u settle for 'dark'?
    dark writing .. got a nice ring to it, dont it?

    metfarigh,
    hala bel7abeeb! i think what i answered 7akeema with should also suffice in responding to u as well.. bas i will say this in addition, inshala wala yhemkom, a nice light-hearted post should follow sometime in the future :)

    bittersweet,
    that's exactly the sort of thing i had in mind: trying to make the reader reconsider his/her definition of oneself, which is taken for granted as being synonymous with one's "identity".. then take a step back, and think about the reception of this supposed reality from the perspectives of all the people we come across in our lives :)

  • I couldn't help but thinking about minor daily situations in which we're confronted with the discrepancies between our perception of our physical appearance or our voice (like when we step into a dressing room surrounded by mirrors in which we see the reflections of every inch of our bodies or when you hear a recording of our voices. Situations in which we (well, at least I do) wonder: Is this what people see and hear when seeing or hearing me?). But still, although it might come as a shock to you, these perceptions of that image in that mirror or that weird voice you hear on a recording - which both some how do belong to you- do not necessarily reflect the same "reality" other people perceive of you. I think this is exactly the same when taking these confrontational situations to another level or dimension: identity.

    This is a great post Tem! Keep them coming bro ☺

  • its not happy or sad
    its simply the reality

    that lack of satisfaction with what u r and what you have to offer
    that smile plastered on ur face while deep down all u want to do is scream

    yeah, that sounds about rite

  • bittersweet,
    hmm that's a pretty sweet analogy! you really hit home with the dressing room and the multiple mirrors example, now that you mention it i DO remember thinking about it at some shops that have their changing rooms fitted like that..
    substitute those mirrors in that equation with people in our lives, and the exact same thing would apply: each reflection is equal to one perception .. fractions.

    eshda3wa,
    something tells me you're talking from experience.. i would hope not though, because that's a pretty heavy thing to deal with going on with one's life.
    which begs the questions, is self-content actually self-imposed? or is it only rewarded by foreign approval/recognition/be it what it may.
    you're good people eshda3wa, don't want to see you hurting now do we?


    agool, chena ro7at el7saineya halayam really makes you question every single thing you took for granted all these years..

  • A dear person once told me that he should reconcile the difference between the private him and the public him to become the genuine person he wants to be. Or as I would place it >> the genuine person he is

    Welcome back Tem :)
    You've been missed

  • Akheeran, ma 9arat new post!

    And I don't think it's a sad post.. It's just.. realistic..

    Probably the majority of whoever reads this will think it's "dark" as you said, but I guess the truth is sometimes too sad/dark/depressing for most people to understand..

    And there's this theory about one's Private/Public self.. I might send it to you later..

    E-mailed you, btw..

  • Nice new logo Tem! I like it very much

    By Blogger BitterSweet, at 3.8.08  

  • Maybe it is pessimisim in a bottle [if in the sense that its conveying that things are not what we want them to be, which they are not anyway], I loved every word of that pieced and its very well written.

    By Blogger CallaLilly_Q8, at 14.8.08  

  • the first two lines struck a cord. Its the raw bitter truth, what we are is what someone else is constructing for us. Its as if we are multiple beings in one trying to mesh and mold into something we believe they believe can fit. your with them, your screwed, your against them your also screwed.
