Great Minds are Young

Archive for October 2013

I have always wondered how people get repeatedly ‘fooled’ by the exact same person, the exact same way, and manage to have the exact same astonishment and disappointment every single time! And what’s even more amazing (and frustrating for that matter) is that they never have a tiny doubt of what was going on until very very late!! The amount of hurt and misery they go through every single time is tremendous, ย the state of shock is great, the reaction is violent, the ‘big’ decisions are firm, yet the exact same history repeats itself, over and over!!

(I am of course not referring to love relationships in particular, though they might be included)

Could it be love? A ‘good heart’? A ‘Spell’?!

(I’d say neither!!)

Assuming that when being crazily in love, one tends to be easily fooled by the sweet words and gestures of his beloved one despite any bitter reality he may be going through, and to positively justify any negative behavior or action from his partner (or son, or friend, etc.). And when things go really wrong, and in the name of their great love or bond, he lives in a great state of denial pretending their relation is stronger and small ‘bumps’ will go away when “people” cease to intervene or “foreign interventions” cease to exist, or simply when the sky is brighter…

And… Assuming that when one has a ‘good heart’ and a goodwill he tends to be always positive, fearing to doubt people’s intentions and always focusing on the good version of the story. He tends to trust people and believe whatever story they sell him, until he can buy no more…

And… Assuming we’re living in a fairy world and that “magic” actually exists, and that when under a spell, one can’t really control his behavior and rationalize, for only the wishes of his bewitcher are to be executed…

Assuming all the above, one may (or may not) understand people falling in for other (same) people’s bad intentions and actions more than once, but I just can’t understand how they manage to be equally shocked, hurt and disappointed every single time!

Any thoughts regarding this mystery/misery?
