The hidden issue

The other day I was driving on the motorway and there was a long queue building up behind a enermous big truck. 

Now this one was so long and heavy that nobody wondered that it was moving so slowly and creating traffic.

Nonetheless, the atmosphere of the followers was not the best as you can imagine. Many honks and curses were heard and could be imagined. Since I was in no rush I was relaxed but decided at some point to overtake the truck. The undertaking started at the rear end and lasted for a long period at the middle part.

It might not be the easiest to recognize or acknowledge matters, which cannot be seen clearly at first glance. We make assumptions based on our perceptions, we make assumptions to keep us in a comfortable place. Situations we take as granted and do not want to look into deeply will remain as they. What is there to lose when we try to change it? What is there to gain from it?

Do we want to change it and hear the bitter truth but perhaps an explanatiory truth, which will put a new light on settled patterns? Do we want to continue our life’s with accepting the situation as we perceive it or do we want to see things clearly?

Also in these period of social and economic chaos. I learned not to believe at the first thing media and unknown people tell me. I made nice discoveries, such as the toy car…
