As I wasn't able to post an article yesterday even though I had it drafted down, I was terribly occupied yesterday with chores and duties but I tried to finish this my draft on OBLIVION even though it is a piece by piece idea joined together to make à whole huge chunk of rambles, I still think you can make sense out of it or grab my point and a lesson or two from it.
Like the drunkards say, " I drink away my sorrows, I drink to forget my worries" ... being drunk/drinking can be considered a safe haven from all the troubles and stress of reality. Forgetting and ignoring seems to be the best of options than facing and solving the issue directly. Issues and matters arises that can be out of our hands at times and do push us to the walls at times and we are left to do the unexpected or unimaginable. Forgetfulness can be at times involuntary than it is voluntary, as an act of defense mechanism by our body to stop our mind from getting damaged and lagged as when it is faced with challenges and difficulties. We all also in one time or the other in our lives must have had such experience and we want to escape from such .
I would be talking about oblivion as a case of forgetfulness in general from habits to relationship and how its placebo helps us if not affect us. Many humans are a use case scenario of the feeling to want to run away from troubles and their pains while some even go extra far to develop the sense to forget their problems. Forgetting and trying to ignore only helps us for a while and some moment but it doesn't mean what we are facing has truly gone. Looking back into past lives, there must have been some actions or behaviours that we might have done or indulged in and that brings us sad moods or make us feel down whenever we remember them and since we can't turn back the hands of time to stop ourselves from doing those acts, most of us have acted to learn to forget such memories. Deeds and actions are to be claimed and responsible for once taken and not wishing one can turn back the hands of time.
Friends also can be forgotten as we move on in life, only those in our inner circle whom get in touch with us regularly would be remembered. The Oblivion - the act of forgetting also has a good side and also a bad one. The sense of happiness and relief one feels when he or she forgets about a terrible event happening in their lives really hits the spot, it can be considered as being "Opium" - Opium a drug one takes that makes one free of guilt and gives one the fantasy of heaven, an hallucinationary kind of drug taken to give one forceful peace of mind and comfort but when the effect of the drug dies down, one's consciousness is Brought back to life. A thought that have always dangled in my mind was that what if we wake up one day and see that our parents, our siblings, our children, our friends, our families all doesn't remember who we are to them and we become a stranger to them - how would we feel ? I would leave us with that question as I close to show curtains and drop my writing pen here .
This article might be mumbo-jumbo , pardon me all . I would write a masterpiece soon once i am spaced and convenience enough ~lol~ . Thanks for reading and your time, have a nice day ahead 😊.
