Idea on Ideals
We all have ideals.
Notice, I did not say idols, I said ideals. Ideals are what you believe to be the perfect scenario.
Keeping in touch with your best friend since high school, growing old with him and building a house next door. Ideal.
Graduating college with a job set in place with a starting six-figure salary. Ideal.
Children have thousands of ideals. Jayden comes over to grandma's house with the ideal situation that he's going to have thousands of toys, lots of games, and a plethora of movies.
Yes. A plethora.
Each of our ideals may vary. There is a problem that confronts us though, when ideals are not met. We can become very upset that someone or something was not ideal.
Whether it's hitting traffic when you weren't expecting it, someone leaving you, or spilling food all on yourself during your date with that "perfect person". We can begin to take offense to someone or something...because our "ideal" was not met. A lot of the time, no one knows what our ideals are.
None of us are mind-readers, (breaking news to all you X-Men fans) and we cannot completely know what others' ideals are 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We must talk.
Communicating brings about our ideals.
At least...that's my idea.
