Obscured from the universe, I’m holding up my fears, Letting out cries That no one will hear My tear, just a drop In the big, boundless sea Flowing where it takes it Until it’s unseen Nobody can feel What I feel deep down Even the loudest of screams Don’t seem to make a […]Too Insignificant — Fun with Philosophy
Here is a good take on that feeling of being small and insignificant. It seems like most people don’t like that feeling. I dunno. Sometimes I feel like being small and insignificant will work in my favor if I mess something up. If I’m insignificant, then most things I do will be insignificant too. It’s the small harm, small foul philosophy.
I guess most people think the opposite. They don’t think they will mess something up. On the other hand, they think they will do something great. So yeah, when you look at it that way, there is a limit on how great your greatness could be. It probably won’t be so great. It might end up being kind of good.
Or is it that most people feel that others expect greatness from them and they can’t live up to the expectation? Hmmmm maybe that’s it. If that’s the case, then yeah that’s not a good feeling. You gotta shake that feeling off.
