the easier toys sit on the bottom shelf.
you know the ones that are played with the most.
they are the ones that are at an arm’s reach.
those toys get to go everywhere…
As worn out as they get,
they end up getting the most play.
the fancier toys sit on the top shelf.
even though they’re at an arm’s length,
they are looked at and treated differently.
a compliment i guess,
but often times,
it gets very lonely up there.
i don’t know if you’re like me,
you’re passed over for the toys on the bottom shelf.
they have all these interesting experiences and you’re just sitting up there.
it doesn’t feel good at all.
people go for what is easier to get.
they get intimidated so easily by anything that presents itself as a challenge.
that’s the shit that gets me.
people tell you:
“Put yourself out there!”
you’re open and available,
but something about you just screams “look but don’t touch“.
maybe it’s how you were raised?
past experiences made you calm all the way down?
you could be just someone other people think are “better” than what they’re use to.
it makes you feel awkward and weird like you don’t fit in.
it’s not a good feeling even tho it keeps you out of a lot of bullshit.
that was on my spirit today.
i don’t know who can relate.
