Life In My Fantasies

"Life is not about how happy you are. Life is about how happy others can be because of you."

This is my belief. It may be too long for you to put your eyes on it, but I hope everybody will understand. And I won't force any of you to finish reading it.

*************************************************************************************

Among all of my genres here, the one that I love most is 'fantasy'.
People who know me would say that 'me' is about psychology, or philosophy, or poetry, or writing, or MUSE, or English, or temper, or thinking. Whatever.

But those who really know me would say that 'me' is about fantasies and imaginations. Yup, that is the real me. I fantasize things all the time.

So why do I talk so much about aliens?

Why did I write 'This Is How Aliens Are Going To Destroy Us'?

I see 'aliens' as the unexpected things that can happen or intervene into our lives. In 'This Is How Aliens Are Going To Destroy Us' (the previous post), I described the character 'alien' as one little thing that when the time is not right, can bring up so many hatred, or sad memories, or fights, or unexpressed feelings, or grudges that lie deep inside us. Oh yes, we all love to pretend that we don't have anything inside, don't we?

But then one day, something 'so tiny' happens, or is said, then everything snaps. Everything goes out. Like the father who blames the son for his wife leaving him, and like the son who blames the father for not taking good care of his mother.

And why did I write 'Aliens Will Never Know Us'?

In that post, I described 'aliens' as the unexpected outcomes that can be brought up based on things that we have done. It is true if I say that we all love to ignore those 'little things' we always do, isn't it?

But then one day, something terrible happens, and it is all started from those 'little things'. Like how we always leave out some words, or add up more, and eventually change the whole message, and finally it becomes a different message, that holds another meaning to other people. Everything changes. Sometimes it's a good change, sometimes it's not.

Then why did I write 'Are We Actually Aliens, Too?'

I described 'aliens' as 'us'. How different we think aliens can be, how frightening we believe aliens can be, how mysterious we see aliens can be, and how exact we 'never' see aliens can be. To us, aliens are strangers. To them, we are strangers. So, doesn't that fact make both of us 'aliens', too?

Let's face the fact. We don't need aliens to show us what humans are. Because there are moments when we are becoming 'aliens' to another person. Oh come on! Just look at us. Are we always warm to everyone around us? Are we always good to our friends and families? Do we always believe in other people?

*************************************************************************************

This is why I love fantasy. I can talk about all those stupid, absurd, ridiculous and unreal things, and you may find it annoying. But one fact that we fail to see is, that those imaginary things, are made based on real things. We are real. Our brains are real. Our lives are real.

I'm having a streak of bad luck. I've done terrible mistakes, and somehow, they get under my skin. But do you know what is the ONE thing that makes me smile throughout any circumstances? It's my fantasies.

So I do hope that even if my fantasies ridicule you, and annoy you, one day they are able to find their way to you, show you their intended meanings, and bring the smiles out of you.

Our creativity is only limited by our imagination. Don't limit ourselves, please. I'm just trying to make everybody smile, and see those things we have forgotten. And forgive me should I fail doing that.
