Last act of the Barbara Mushy “trilogy” of 4 stories!
Sit down at the table. Some questions that need to be asked (whether you’re a man or a woman, no matter your orientation)…
- – Why, most of the time, is it considered shameful to let a person know that you are in love with them?
- – How was your reaction when you realised that you began to feel these things, that you truly liked someone? Would you go there and express your feelings or would you be embarrassed only by thinking that they could find out?
- – Why do we tend to think the person we care about will like us better if they’re snubbed?
- – From what age do you hear the maxim “You only give value to something when you lose it”, or “You don’t know what you got until it’s gone”?
- – Why do some people recommend us to despise a little the ones we love for them to run after us?
- – How many people do you know have moved away from someone they were getting engaged to because it was “becoming too serious”? How many of them admit that they did let them go because of difficulties in dealing with emotions? How many appear to blame other factors?
- – Why, when we tell someone that a person likes us, we always choose a tone by which we are the superior ones, such as “Hey, (s)he is crazy about me”, “That girl/boy just does not stop talking” and things like that?
- – How did we internalise this stupid myth that relates the figure of the one who loves to the weakest side of history?
- – Why are women taught to love with devotion from the moment they are born, something that is already perceived in the themes of some games, but men are not?
- – Do you have in mind the memory of hearing/listening to someone saying some people were “boring”, “annoying”, “sticky”? How often do you remember this being related to the emotional way they usually behaved?
