THE LOOPHOLE THEORY
Hey! I am Bhakti, a Homeopathic student from Pune with weird ideologies and love for psychology. Okay so to get to the point, as you read in the title, I came up with this theory some time ago. To give you a little preface; I was talking to my friend over call and the exams were announced to be held in like a month or so. There was a lot of mess, with the COVID situation and many other obstacles because of it. But they had announced, so we were expected to get ready to face it. I was already exhausted so much with the lectures and self-study I had been doing for the past 6 months and didn’t feel like doing anything, anymore. My friend on the other hand was so motivated and excited that all our hard work, giving up on all the fun things was finally going to pay off. So, while talking on the phone she was trying really hard to cheer me up, plan further things, get ready for the ‘FIGHT’, as she claimed it. Even though I wasn’t really in the mood, I felt bad seeing her wasting her time to motivate me. So instead of complaining about how I couldn’t process anything or showing her my apathetic behaviour, I pretended to be ready to start planning with the little bit of energy I had. Now, what I didn’t tell you before is that while we were talking before planning a nice schedule, I was simply scribbling in my book. I was making triangles, pentagons, hexagons and all kind of pointed structures in the corner of my book.
Later, when I was pretending to be motivated, what I observed was, in that small structure with all pointed shapes, I started making pretty little loops where-ever I could.
As I told you before about my love for psychology, so I am also interested in graphology (the science which tells you about the state of mind by observing the handwriting, drawing, signatures, etc.). I keep on reading about it and up till now whatever information I had understood said that pointed structures, letters in a person’s handwriting or drawing shows aggression and negativity. I am a person who always looks for deeper meanings. Thus, I understood by now that the pointed structures I had scribbled were due to my negativity, boredom and lack of motivation. But then, when I started pretending to be motivated and positive, I was making loops. Now, the interesting question was what did those loops mean? I didn’t remember reading anything about loops. I searched online, and it didn’t take much time to find my answers (thanks to YouTube). I could believe them easily because they matched all my emotions about the situation. Now the thing is everyone has a different perspective, a different approach. To tell you the truth I myself had two different perspectives over it. I will be sharing the one on which I did the maximum research. So, apparently the loops or circles are mostly used for logos. For eg. Logos of cars like Mercedes, BMW or Starbucks Coffee, etc have circles around them. According to graphology, these loops mean ‘confidentiality’. It means someone not opening about their private details. So it makes sense, right? When I withdrew my real emotions, in order not to disappoint my friend, what happened to the sad, negative emotions? We can say they got trapped in the loops (for some time). I became private about those negative emotions. Now we can’t tell when will they splash back again because we know everything that goes around, comes around. But we all need this, don’t we? Usually we try to rebound ourselves after a whole trip of negative emotions at some point. But how easy it becomes when you have a hand to pull you out of that never ending, constantly hurting black hole. If I hadn’t got a call from that friend, if she wouldn’t have tried to repair my ruptured motivation, if I hadn’t forcefully tried to get rid of the pessimism, I would have been sulking still. Eventually, everyone gets back up, but the world seems so much better when you have your fellow hoomans (as a doggo would say 😉) helping you through with it. I don’t know how much sense all of this makes and everyone will have their own perspectives over it. But that is how it is. Everyone uses their own various perspectives, ideologies, beliefs to rebound and finally all of us are only trying to get drunk with all the positive power and the will to reach our own goals. So basically, if the destination is same but with different journeys, why don’t we walk together? Why don’t we help each other in our journeys? A little hope, a pat on someone’s back when needed, a small smile, a tight hug is all it takes to make someone’s heart smile (small change) and to change someone’s perspective eventually (bigger change). This has become way to long and way to philosophical than I expected it to be. But today I believe that such small things may make our little world a better place. My beliefs and my (weird) philosophies may change with time and I am okay with it as long as I know that every time I make pointed structures of negativity, there will be little loops gulping it all and beaming out immense positivity.
And finally, overthink, overlove, overwork, overexpress, overcome with the right positive approach to come out of your cocoon and open the parachutes of your beautiful minds. FLY! See you up here. 😉
