When Reality & Insanity Converge

Definition of Insanity: Doing the same thing over and over and hoping to get a different result.

Let’s be honest – we’ve all been there. Whether it’s thinking that “if I try just a little bit harder my relationship will work out” or “if I just look past this elephant in the room everything will be magically okay” we’ve all done it.

Or at least I have.
But maybe it’s just me.

See that definition above? That’s the true price of insanity. It never lets us see things for the way that they really are – they mar our minds into this false sense of thinking that we have control over the situation at hand.

Even when we don’t.

When reality and insanity converge it’s like a thunderstorm. You think it’s going to rain but then it storms and sometimes you have to wait it out. And that waiting is painful. Sometimes that reality is so unpalatable that while the storm is raging and you are waiting it out you parse the issue into microscopic pieces trying to control ‘just one piece’.

But we never really do.
