Suspicious

Leave a comment

STJ2013 Rebel 036b

Unannounced visits or encounters can be disconcerting. One can’t be sure of the motive of the visitor or the person approaching and certainly can’t be aware of the motive of a dog or other unfamiliar animal. Suspicions arise when one can’t see any indication in a person’s or animal’s body language whether they are friendly and are coming with good intentions or not. Of course one doesn’t generally encounter family and friends in a way that makes them seem dangerous, but sometimes one becomes suspicious anyway. Unfounded suspicion can be traced to a number of things, primarily a lack of trust. This lack of trust is not a trait that anyone was born with, but is a learned characteristic; learned from repeated disappointments in close friends and family that affected them physically, mentally, or emotionally. When one’s trust is abused it is very difficult to face anyone without a display of suspicion or at least a pronounced wariness. There are also those individuals who choose to fight fire with fire and will go on the attack once they have identified a suspicious character. It is very hard to communicate effectively with people whose suspicion is ingrained, and even more so if you are a suspicious person yourself. Without communication there is a definite loss any way to resolve differences or to avoid confrontation. Those who don’t suffer from global suspicion have a responsibility to help allay those suffering from uncontrolled suspicion, if possible which is quite difficult since each person’s suspicions and lack of trust developed differently. Can you think of a strategy to help those troubled with unbridled suspicion?

I've been struck many times by the thoughts that run through my head when I'm outdoors and contemplating nothing in particular. The thoughts can be profound or silly, sad or joyful, relevant or not. But they're always there. And with just a bit of concentration they can lead to the most astonishing places and on the most convoluted trails. Exploring those vagaries and jigs and jogs is fun. I'm attempting to find more of these trails to see if they lead anywhere or nowhere, because even nowhere is somewhere. The bits and pieces of the outdoors help to make the indoors survivable. Photos help bring the outdoors in and remind me of many of the thoughts I had while still outside, a very valuable tool they are, too.
