This is having untold consequences on our environment, as we can see in the photo from tumblr (click for the article), but also is having consequences on our psyche. All so often we are finding ourselves in disposable relationships. Where friendships are made and destroyed in moments, sexual relationships are built and broken, rebuilt elsewhere without a second thought or feeling.Human beings have been conditioned to love material things, like TVs and Gameboys. Human beings have also been taught at school and beyond that we are mechanical biology. Our very nature is that we are machines, a result of processes and chemical equations. So, we are translating our disposable nature of plastic and microchips into our very personalities. We are treating ourselves as the objects we throw away. Let's imagine this rubbish dump. It festers and spreads, those who come close are easily at risk of sinking and getting disease. Let's look at human beings, all disposed of in some way. For not being good enough, for being broken, for failing, for being not like how the advert says it should be... we all end up on the dumpit site of life. If we believe it. If we dispose of our friends and loved ones as quickly as our milk bottles then we will feel no better than the rotting bag of waste in the heat in Sidon. Deep down, we know we are far too valuable to throw away, dispose of and forget. We know that not one single one of us is deserving of the dumpit site. Yes, if we have serious reasons for removing someone from our life, we must take that as key, and do so, but it must be based on truth. Truth being that this person does not respect you and will not respect you when asked and therefore you have no choice. How do we not throw people away? We can by all means choose our friends. It is very simple. We respect the fact that their feelings are just as real as our own and we cater for that. That is all. Appreciate that they are also aware.
Denial of another is denial of oneself.
