Just some random burblings.
A void is a space containing nothing. Sometimes used to mean an empty space left behind where something once was.
Yeah – I can relate. I have one of those.
Avoidance is something I’ve never really been very good at. The times when i have tried to avoid something, its quite quickly rushed up behind me and bitten me on the bum. Or in the wallet, or whatever.
Or the little thing it started out as got bigger…and bigger……and bigger…..until it was suddenly a mount everest I had to scale single handedly. In a time trial. Naked.
So, while things can be put off – avoidance is never a good idea. I’m sure you can relate.
Avoidance of people / topics that are uncomfortable. This one depends on who and what. But often, I just go in there like a bulldozer dressed in a clown suit. Try and disguise it with humour. It often works.
Or I will hover…..and the other person will bulldoze me……and we probably get there eventually.
But avoidance is not helpful. It does no-one any good. It allows for mountains to grow from mole hills, huge rates of interest to be applied to tiny debts, and it creates voids that you yourself are just as likely to fall into as anyone else.
I would always rather know than guess. I would always rather deal with the truth than lies or speculation.
I am not talking about opinion here. That is something else entirely.
Avoidance is just that. You are avoiding something. You are being non-committal, indecisive, inactive, blah, meh. You are leaving the way open for things to happen. You are allowing things to happen. You are almost………maybe even subconsciously……waiting to see what happens.
So – if avoidance creates a void, does continued avoidance keep the door open?
