The question is: You’ve been given a key that can open one building, room, locker, or box to which you don’t normally have access. How do you use it, and why?
So in the magical world of Crownite, there is a box that contains all the hearts and minds of every person on the face of this Earth. And finally I have the Golden Key to unlock this box. I think we all know what I’d do with it…
I’d leave the hearts and minds of all my patient’s alone. The general public would be safe from my own curiosity as well. I don’t think I need to know what’s going on in the hearts and minds of every single person on this Earth. Too overwhelming and many times my cognizance makes it so that I tend to know things without being told anyways. What I would like is to see the heart and mind of the two men that I have truly loved and carried high expectations towards and have been let down by in this life: my ex and my father. I want to know what their intentions were, what they really thought and felt about me and about us. In a way, I know. But it’s hard to accept sometimes that knowingness when there’s very little proof.
Sometimes people’s words and actions don’t align. For example, I do believe that my ex loves me, but that he didn’t feel mature enough, good enough, worthy enough to continue a relationship with me. At the end of the day, in his mind, the issue was marriage. He didn’t want to go forward with something that he just didn’t feel ready for. Perhaps he was right, I’m not the girl he wanted to marry. Maybe I’m not the girl he saw in his future. Or maybe I am the girl, like I believe I am, but he didn’t want me to be there to witness his progress. I feel as though he continues to tell himself (and consequently me), “I’m not coming back. I’m not coming back.” Because he doesn’t want to continue the cycle. But I don’t know this for sure, because he won’t tell me, won’t talk to me, and is still trying to figure things out himself. But I do believe that there’s something there, despite his silence.
Even though I’ve only mentioned two men, there is perhaps one other person whose mind and heart I’d like access to. My uncle’s. He keeps so much to himself. Even though he’s social and expressive and very much a risk taker, there’s a fear there, something there that’s been blocking him and preventing him from reaching the success that he’s so longed to reach. I’d like to access his mind and his heart so that I can further explore that, without his interference. Sometimes the human ego can get in our own way of true healing. I believe that’s what his ego does. But we can’t always help people who don’t want our help.
