Myths and everyday life

23 May

You probably heard of the myth about Theseus and the Minotaur. Ariadne fell in love with Theseus and gave him a ball of thread. This was so he could find his way out of the labyrinth after he kills the Minotaur.
I think this myth teaches us a wise message. When we have to confront our fears, or bad habits or we want to make big changes in our life it's good to have someone you can always rely on. Sometimes our motivation is not enough if you don't have someone to hold your hand.

    It also teaches us to always have the means to find our way back out again! :knight: .

    But there are times when a motivation is the only thing we have left :knight:

    I think that is very much true. It doesn't necessarily have to be our lover, it can be our parent, sibling, cousin, friend… but it is good to have a shoulder to cry on when we need it. :up:

    I believe myths can be very helpful in making right decisions in life, but of course only if you find the right ones 😀 Like myth of Narcissus for example and the fact that he couldn't leave the beauty of his reflection and then ended up dead…

    @Darko- I agree 🙂 Then we have to find strength in ourselves.@Anchy- Yes, it can be every person we can trust :)@Gyng- Yes, I agree but also different people can understand the same myth in different ways 🙂

    Yes, like understanding colors symbolics, most of the people connect green color with life but it for me it symbolizes melancholy… People are strange…

    For me deepness 🙂 And turquoise color is something calm and dreamy, I remember few months ago I was in some room painted in turquoise, oh, if I could spend a day in a month there I would say goodbye to stress and similar stuff…
