My Life vs. Metaphor...
In language, a metaphor (from the Greek: metapherin) is a rhetorical trope defined as a direct comparison between two or more seemingly unrelated subjects. In the simplest case, this takes the form: "The [first subject] is a [second subject]." More generally, a metaphor describes a first subject as being or equal to a second subject in some way. Thus, the first subject can be economically described because implicit and explicit attributes from the second subject are used to enhance the description of the first.
I love metaphor. For me, it’s the easiest way to express myself without being feel too personal (that’s why I always end up hating myself). It’s a tool for people who want to describe their feeling but feel it inappropriate (or uncool) to speak it directly. My life often depended on this tool so many times especially in situation that I haven’t got a gut to give straight answers.
Am I thinking too much about everything? Definitely. I don’t know why I am being like this, it’s just my personality. I think everybody have some complexity in themselves. Someone choose to leave it behind, live their life and enjoy whatever that presented before them. I’m kind of envy these people. It’s not that they don’t care about their complexity. It’s just that they can get over it and look it as common thing. On the other hand, it’s me, who use my complexity (shallow one) as an excuse for being strange. Although the real “me” who live inside is like a normal pretty funny guy (being told by some of my friends), but outside is so not me. I don’t know how I can change it (or at least to reduce it). Maybe it must have something to do with my likeness of stupid metaphor…
That being said, sometime I do prefer to explain it in metaphor. I think it really useful when you want to evaluate your point. Your friends and other may appreciate you because they will know that you can fully understand what you’ve said. But it has just one problem for me for using it. I always use it to explain something that can easily answer with just simple explanation (like an incident that I’ve told in this blog). I know that this should not be a problem for someone. But hey! It’s me. So I think I have to work something out before it’s getting worse.
