Shoe Theory

We all fall for the prick. Pricks are spontaneous, they’re unpredictable and they’re fun. And then we’re surprised when they turn out to be pricks. ~ Up in the Air

Quite often we experience the strangest concept of life – when I am nice, he/she is bored; when I do something bad he/she is all over. We cannot help but wonder why can’t it be easy and straight-forward? No games involved?

The answer is quite simple – because we are human. It is in our nature to be attracted to a forbidden fruit, a thrill of a hunt, a feeling of a victory.

People, relationships, feelings, emotions… it’s all like shoes.

Case 1

You see a pair of beautiful shoes and you immediately want to own them. You imagine how fabulous they will look on your feet.  You must buy them. No matter what. Regardless of the sacrifices you are about to make.  When you finally get them, you are in seven heaven. A few days later, the infatuation is over and shoes are added to the list of the past adventures. Peacefully sleeping in their designated box, they are no longer exciting.

Case 2

Everyone has two pairs of shoes – slippers and shiny stilettos.  Slippers are extremely comfortable and always serve their purpose. You never take good care of slippers. Yet, you have completely different relationship with your stilettos.  They hurt your feet, make you cry. They are total assholes. Creative, spontaneous, and confident in their powers. And you forgive this deviant behavior because they make you feel ohhh soo good, soo adorable. You only act surprised when at the end of the night you get a blister on your big toe.

The point to remember is that slippers will last for a long time, whereas stilettos will shine only for a few nights. Eventually, you stilettos will exhaust your energy and you will want to put on cozy sleepers.
