I think Ive finally found it, a better way to look at my position. Sure Im invisible, I know Im not the only one who feels that way. But as of now, I wonder if I really want that to change.
Think of it this way:
-T r y a n d r e a d t h i s s e n t e n c e
Its not as easy as reading this sentence is it?
Wait did that say anything? Looks like its missing some letters and spacing no?
Lets try and fix that.
-Now try to read this one
Easier? Lets hope.
Now try something, imagine every person you see is a letter, it doesnt matter what letter. Lets use J as an example.
All right, thats one person. But they alone cant make a decent word, hes going to need some other people beside him.
Now we have a word! But still, wouldnt he look better with other words next to him? Other groups of people?
Well, we have the other words, but somethings still missing...
Are you catching on now?
The spaces, the invisible unnoticed spaces. Theyre what link all these words together, and not just words. Sentence to sentence, paragraph to paragraph, they maybe be unseen and looked over, but if it wasnt for them all of our sentences would look like this:
That would start hurting my eyes if you ask me.
Every person has a group of friends, people they trust and hold on to. Of course this also comes with enemies, people they dont want to get close too, so lets take three words as an example.
-Dog Ran and The
These groups of people dont really want to hang around the others, so how can you separate them without another specific person coming in.
Spaces, the invisible people, the ones you never notice. The ones you tend to look over every day. If it wasnt for them all these people and groups would be cluttered together, you cant read a story that way. And just because people are spaces doesnt mean they dont have friends. Not all of them do, which is such a sad event in my opinion, cause its usually these people who end up dying sooner than they should.
There are few letters that can just stand alone, the main ones being I and A but those are normally selfish people, and who wants to be around them when the only thing they care about is themselves.
I is used so common now a days, maybe thats why there are more and more selfish people around.
There is no I in team, but there is an A, watch yourself.
Now Im not saying every person who is A is selfish, no. A lot of As cant stand by themselves, same with Is. Just watch how many times you put that letter in a sentence a day.
Im a space, it makes sense. I normally go unnoticed, unseen, looked over, and yet I have the ability to hang among many types of people. Sure there are people I dont like, but thats for another space to take care of.
Some words are big and some are small, the same goes with groups of people. But no matter how long or short the word is you can be sure theres a space somewhere in between.
Heres an experiment for you writers:
Next time youll be hanging around a public place, take an average of how many people are in a certain spot at a time. Then, every time the people move look up and swiftly count of many people you see, meaning, just the ones you see, dont look extra hard for anyone else. After taking many counts, see how many people you may have over looked due to your average. A lot? A little? None? Depends on how observant you are. But I hope you may have missed a lot because when you finish adding up the total number of people you counted and how many you missed try and write a few sentences with them, using around the same amount of letters, and the exact number of spaces, see what happens.
Such a idea has given me a new way to look at my situation. I can sit around thinking that Ill never earn any respect, or I can just move on knowing that Im holding people together.
letters to letters
words to words
sentence to sentence
paragraph to paragraph
story to story
Such an amazing thing spaces are...
