It Got Me Thinking...

I am sitting here in my room and reading stories and answers to the questions posted here in EP and I came across these question of the day: "Have you ever loved someone that didn't love you back?" and read some answers that made me think of chains. Yes, chains and you'd ask, what about chains? Well, first of all, it is a kind of chain that they used in dungeons to keep prisoner and it got me thinking, do people have these so called chains? Chains that were not made of metal but made of fears, doubts, insecurities, and other negative things that holds the person down and can't break free and see the beauty of the world. It holds the person down to experience happiness and go all out. All negative isn't it? But hear this, there are also chains that were made of positive things which can be happiness, inspiration, love and other positive things that kept a person grounded yet still be free and a total opposite on the chains that I mentioned earlier and you'd ask isn't it what chains do? keep you prisoner? No, it is not that kind of chains, this kind of chains will be like the bicycle chain that makes the bicycle move when you pedal and can take you to places or a door chain that can keep you open the door yet make it hard for someone to force itself inside or it can be a chain that helps hoist up heavy things. And now you'd ask what does it got to do with the question? Well, nothing really, as I've said it just got me thinking. *grin*.

Do you have these so called chains?

Have you tried writing short stories? :) If not, I think you should have a go at it! I like your similes, obstacle chains and chains of progress..!
I do have some obstacle chains for sure, I think no one in this world can break free from all of them.

Thanks! Haven't tried it yet, maybe i'll give it a go.
Forever be chained huh. :)
