The people and circumstances may change, but the essence remains the same.

How much can one take and who is to blame?

Not her again. She sits upon the sofa directly across from me. Her purple hair and blonde eyebrows accentuate the green envy in her eyes. There’s plenty staring back at me. I never break eye contact, so she decides to look away, apparently taking pity upon me. The air conditioning seems to […]

  1. Initially I was confused selecting between a sibling and a mother daughter dialogue but the ending in a way stumped me. I also read somewhere psychologists are probably the most depressing tribe, what a well written story!

    • I’m glad I was able to confuse you, Deepak. Though the intent of this statement is only for the story. haha. And I agree with you. Psychologists probably live in a world of their own. Some oblivious, some unable to disconnect. Thanks so much for your wonderful comment. I appreciate it. 🙂

  2. Interesting perspective. I can imagine that being a therapist is difficult but it does seem like this character doesn’t have the right skills for it. There should be a distance between the two people, but I’m not sure that means you don’t need to show some empathy…

    • I agree with your perspective. And sadly many therapists aren’t cut out for the profession. Listening to problems and guiding others isn’t an easy task. It requires empathy, responsibility, and discipline. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I appreciate it. 🙂

  3. I don’t mind clicking 2 links to read your blog. You write exceptionally!!
    I am new to your site and I am looking forward to read more. Please, don’t mind the notification.

    • That’s very kind of you, Devang. I appreciate that you took out the time to read and comment. Thanks a lot and take care. 🙂

      • I read only 4 poems but I was mesmerized. Yes, I’ve heard about your site before and I was always Curious to read your work. I always asked myself, she must have written some high quality content, will I be able to understand??
        I’m glad to be here

  4. Haha, love the ending. So she’s a psychologist. No wonder. Somehow I feel that the woman is a narcissist. She’s so consumed in herself and enjoy a grandiose image of herself. I fell victim to narcissist in my family and my friendships, but not anymore. Live and learn.

    • I agree with you, Haoyan. It’s so tough to be subjected to narcissistic behavior. It ruins a person’s mental setup. And yes, psychologists (not all) can very much be full of themselves. They probably need counselling more than their patients. Haha. Thanks so much! 🙂
