Close up


“Viewed up close, nobody is normal” Caetano Veloso

The very thought of close-up reminds me about human nature.

We generally keep our emotions close-up to the chest which prevents us from solving the problems or even making an attempt to discuss with our near and dear.

These things can start right from childhood.

Don’t you think it affects our mental and physical wellbeing?

Do you conceal your emotions, my friend?

Some said that by concealing our emotions we don’t react violently or hurt others’ feelings.

I am not sure.

“The two most common lies in our world are ‘I’m fine’ and ‘You’ll be okay’.

They are said without harmful intent and often said in an attempt to placate worries, but still, they tell us it is not our place to make another person uncomfortable or to draw too much attention to ourselves.

Over and over, we mindlessly repeat variations of the same two phrases as we hide within our lies and attempt to spare others from the miserable truth.

I’m fine. I’m okay.

You’re fine. You’ll be okay. Everything will be all right.

We become our lies, but only on the surface.

Underneath, we are not fine and they will not be okay. We all know this but we’re afraid to speak it”
