Peaceful Lake

When do we know when enough is enough? That we’ve allowed ourselves to cross the border, and that it no longer makes sense to continue. We often don’t know the answer, but the people around us yearn for us to stop what we are doing. People won’t tell us this because they aren’t comfortable with telling us what to do, and want us change our behavior for ourselves, and not because of them. Many of us will try to change our behavior to suit our environment. However, our old principles and feelings won’t fully give in to the environment, and we will simply lie to ourselves, and say that we changed.

In some of us will come defiance, and the urge to fight. No matter how painful it is for us on both a mental and physical level, we won’t give up on our current way of life. If we listen to the people around us, does that mean they are smarter than us? More experienced than us? That they beat us? A helpful suggestion should be praised; We should hold our head high even if we are seen as someone who is ignorant, or does not live in today’s world. It is pointless to talk about how few of us can afford to admit that we’ve done this several times before. Okay, they did it for us to help us. This doesn’t mean that our views are limited, but perhaps that our views at that time came from a different angle.

And the beautiful and peaceful lake of our mind for a short time becomes a swollen emotional river. Usually large and necessary changes start from completely petty and insignificant things. If changes aren’t brought forth, then they will remain figments of our imagination. Of course, sitting beside a quiet lake on sunset brings a nice feeling. And it can happen for the whole evening, day after day, month after month, and year after year. We will want to have a fresher breeze blow through our mind. If not only to clear up a storm, then to calm the overflowing river banks, and sweep away the old ways of narrow thinking that we’ve been building for years. beautiful_summer_sunset

Introducing Robert

He’s very nice and handsome, but his soul is definitely not. His mind is dirty and wet like your skin after one hour of aerobics, and I mean like that 80’s aerobics. Try to detoxify him and you’ll get very sick. His heart is made for adrenalin, for his baby Mazda 6. That’s number one, after that comes additional accessories – women. Does he remember the first one? Probably he does, everybody does. He is so well trained by now that he even thought to open a website dedicated to offering advice for men in general, using a false identity, is understood. He would help battles to be won and he would be a leader, a bit more adrenalin won’t hurt. Light is green, move on. Next stop the Casper bar, hidden in a passage near Zeil, old town Frankfurt. Friday smells in the air. The night is still fresh. His baby is safe in the garage. The phone rings, Roy’s picture is on a display, he’s already there “In a minute.” Robert has its own rules. He walks in like he has all the time in the world. What’s better than stretching his legs in a promenade full of people female in gender? The age of girls he sees out lately is decreasing and he doesn’t like that. He thinks that they’re taking space for something more mature. “Something…” Hmmm, he has to change that word. The Bar slowly filled; Roy was drinking a spritzer and smoking those black cigarettes Robert hated. “We won’t stay young forever.” Roy flashed to him. “But we can make it last longer.” “I’m having the same.” The waitress had already poured a drink.

The Casper bar is top shelf for the last few years. “We could change this weekend and go to a disco!?” That would be too noisy for Robert. “I would go to a disco if I had to.” He never had a need to chase women. Even when he did it looked like he didn’t care. Patience is his virtue. It took a lot of patience for Robert and Roy to develop their company for being the most well known internet security brand in Germany. They have known each other since college, of which Robert didn’t finish. The death of his father happened in a very important moment, and it shook him up badly. That’s when Roy had an idea with their program they been developing during their studies. It took years to finish it, but all that patience and hard work paid off. So Robert didn’t need a diploma to find a job, together with Roy they opened a company where he put all of his energy into. Independent and free, with all that charm, Robert traveled a big part of the Mediterranean, changing his partners like the tires on his baby. He always thought that his girls wanted the same. Some of them did, but some tried to hook him, they always lost him in the end. He likes what he has, no need to change it.
