A Taste of Happiness

The grass is always greener on the other side, it seems, not matter who you are. Still, there are some who've never even dreamed of seeing that lively shade because it's not even in the realm of possibility.

Maybe you've not once considered what it would be like to live what most would consider a normal, peaceful life. You're too plagued by danger or ostracized, and if you did think about how things could be different, you'd only bring pain over what can't be.

Except it can be.

You've woken up where, if you live in constant violence, you now have peace. If you're an outcast, you're now accepted by others. And more than that, you also have a happy home with a lover - something you may have thought you'd never have - and perhaps even a family. You may or may not have desired that. Everyone else here thinks it's always been like this, but you know the truth.

...don't you? Or are you the confused one, and this the reality?

At any rate, how do you take this new "life?" Are you suspicious? It's understandable to be; you know who you are and where you stand, and you don't remember any of this. Could it be a trap all along? Is this a world where you wish you could stay or might actually try to do so? If that's the case, you may want to pull away and remind yourself that there must be an illusion here. Do you find the whole affair bittersweet? There's also the possibility that you'll learn from this. All things considered, what made your life so hard may also be what made you.
