Some people or things in our lives are a bit like fake plants. We often get them to fill up the space when we don’t really know what we want and we don’t want to spend too much money.
But with time they become a part of our space. They look ok, sometimes even quite nice, but they don’t really give us anything. They don’t give oxygen nor clean the air. On the contrary they can be quite toxic dust collectors. They never bloom either.
The thing is that we get used to them and keep them in our space for a long time. As long as we are doing so, we will never realize if there is a flower that we truly want. As long as the fake flowers are here we don’t have space for something valuable, beautiful and beneficial to us. Something that we can care about and witness its growth.
