Veronica is my evil twin and alter ego. For some sick reason I let her take over my blog on Fridays so she can spew her opinions, rants and advice. Let’s see what she has to say about the Seven of Swords…
Have you ever been told by some well meaning twit to “just be yourself”?
And did you think “but if I was truly mySELF, I wouldn’t be here doing this stupid shit in the first place.”
So here’s the thing…
No one actually means it when they say “be yourself” – what they really mean is that your current performance of going through the motions of everyday, mind-numbing life is less convincing than it should be.
It’s not enough that you toil away at a meaningless job, suffer monogamy, engage in inane chit chat with others and pay tax, insurance, processing fees, administration fees and licensing fees.
You must do this with genuine enthusiasm! Or at least convince others that you are genuine.
Nothing brings the morale down like someone who just can’t be bothered to pretend anymore.
So what if you actually did start acting more like your real self? What would it look like? What would you stop doing? What would you start doing? And best of all….how would it mercilessly shred the fabric of society?
