Genre: Psychological/That’s Life

How far would you go? How far would you go to make people believe in what you believe in?

You had that moment of epiphany when you walked the Road to Damascus. You have fresh ideas, a renewed spirit and you sense that this is it, what you’ve been dreaming of your whole life: finding The Answers which are finally here.

So, who do you tell this life-changing knowledge to?  You know that you now possess the truth. You know that your beliefs are right. You now need to  spread ‘The Truth’.

After all, you now Are ‘The Truth’.

So, how far would you go?

+ do you blatantly tell other people what they believe in is Wrong?

+ Is it your goal now to change your friends and families beliefs into yours? (because you’re still ‘Right‘)

+ do you pray for their salvation, forgiveness and mercy from the mighty one right in front of them – to their faces – because they are so misguided and abhorrently Wrong?

Now is the perfect time to take this moment to inform you what I think: Ready?.. I believe wholeheartedly that you are completely and utterly deluded!

And now, keeping that statement in mind,…

…..How am I now any different from you??

I really hope you all got this and it made sense. I’m worried when I write that I’m not properly getting across what I want to say. I’m hoping I did today – crossed fingers 🙂

Omg, I can’t believe after all this time I’ve finally written a story! (see this previous post for what I’m talking about!). Happily, well, Very Happily I’ve wrote this story from one of my most fave weekly writing challenges: The VisDare Photo prompt. Click on the link title for this weeks VisDare 150: Encroach  stories.

I can’t verbally do the photos in this challenge justice, so all I can say is they are a lil bit different than your usual photo prompts and very interesting; They make you think outside the box, up the road and to the left somewhere. I, personally, love them and wait with anticipation for the weeks photo. For the curious amongst you, here is the link to The VisDare page right here! (just click on ‘here’!) and it will take you right there 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Maybe it’s because I’m older, but I often find my truths are not always others’ truths. Things I know and believe from a lifetime of mistakes often ring hollow in others’ thoughts and actions and reactions. Many times I try and get my truth across, and sometimes another listens. But I’ve found that in the end your truth is your truth. And the only way you can be true to it is to live it.

    1. Claudia!! Hello!! 🙂 good to see you 🙂 🙂 🙂

      The person in the story has found religion and he/she believes- as most religious folk, that I’ve met anyway, believe – that their religion is right and everyone else’s is wrong. (I’m sure you have met a few and know what I am talking about). From what I’ve seen, the over religious ones want to convert everybody they meet – sometimes forcibly. I’ve literally heard a person of one religion tell another one that their religion is wrong! I was gobsmacked. So the narrator of the story is picking out these traits/faults in the newly converted. But… he/she is just as guilty of encroaching his/her views because he/she tells them that they are deluded in their beliefs. So, really, is there any difference between them apart from ones religious and the other isn’t? (and I really hope I am making sense here! lol). It’s 6 of 1 and half a dozen of the other.

      Life can be strange. Great to see you! 🙂
