NOOO!!Ouch! Eiiiish! OMG! Grrrr!! Damn it!!…these and many more expressions do give us an idea the person screaming them is either in shock, angry, made a mistake, is in pain or whatever situation that makes us utter that one word, some people feel comforted to just scream WT*…
Let’s say you woke up to learn you have just made the news, you are a headliner for something you have no idea of. Suddenly turned to a superstar, a super-hero that you are not. A lot of thought’s are racing through your mind at this stage doing a memory check of how you spent the last 48hours,what you did or who did what to you and what could this news be about? You are not a politician who would make news anyhow and not even a CEO of a multinational Organization or a sports person.
Imagine the worst case scenario and the headline reads ‘Former drug addict now a porn star’ with your names on it. I mean, you don’t even know the taste of marijuana or you have never even been exposed to pornography and after all, your lifestyle is more of a stone-age kind of person. Ok, this is really bad and what a way to be framed. I am actually freaking not knowing how I for one would handle all that bad reading.
What if it contains good news and make’s good reading like you just won an Olympic gold medal or you just made an entry to the Guinness world book of records for a discovery .Walking tall already, shoulders dusted and feeling all good about life and let the news be huh. I mean it’s most people’s imagination to make that good news, leave a mark on the face of the earth before checking out and remembered for it as long as the earth remains.
I can imagine making a discovery dictating what someone thinks soon as I hug or greet them but ummm…that’s just my wildest imagination but hey, don’t you think anything is possible?
It’s really confusing to just learn about all those headlines and anyone would want to know why, how did that happen, how was this news gathered, too many question rumbling.
Do call the media house that published the news and put in a lawsuit, after all this calls for a lot of money for free after winning the case because for sure, you were just ‘framed.’ Just leave it and in no time it will die a natural death in days, weeks, months maybe, you are not guilty so why waste time starting a fight with the newspaper company. Oh, a lot of damage control has to be done, imagine how social media is trending with the kind of news and a lot of people wanting to know who this person is. In most cases, this is the kind of advice our close friends and relatives would give us, what’s your take anyway? The final action is up-to you who has been ‘framed.’
What about the good news headline? People already calling and your phone line gets so busy with the congratulatory messages or rather asking you questions how and when that happened. Sure it would feel nice saying ‘thank you’ as you beat yourself up inside knowing the news is not true. It feels really good being that superhero after all.
NO it wasn’t me ,the paper made a mistake, please believe me, let me explain this, you obviously would want to make it right to all those around you because others have already taken it as planet truth…maybe save it for some talk show..hahaha. Good for imagination anyway.
As far as I know, no paper would publish something without gathering all the facts together, that would be such unprofessionalism to cost them a lot of $.I know these guys can be good at what they do especially putting up a headline and surely, why put up a mistaken identity ? Why frame you.?
You stormed the media house with all the sarcasm the world could ever hear, you want to beat up the reporter you meet on your way in. You are so angry and you want to know who is behind such news… why you? You are so ready to unleash that green eyed ghost in you!
Oh, yes ! the paper has your name and rather a vague picture and most of the details are similar to yours but you have just been told it’s a different person, the world has a lot of names same as yours. That just got you numb and tying to form the next thought. Pause for a moment….just pause. It’s 1st April maybe. Deep breathe in and out….PAUSE!!!
This news made you ‘mad’ it was so bad and you felt happy-superhero for a moment but all is not real.
This too is reality as often times we have over-reacted to something we shouldn’t have, of course something pointed to us but no, it wasn’t us, oh yes, you could have been framed along your path in life and you reacted without gathering the facts, something’s could have been true but again certain reactions injure us and the other person more.
Out of rage, people have pulled that trigger, they were accused and couldn’t stand that accusation then face the repercussions of that jail cell. We have many who have lost friends because they felt betrayed and said one word which turned the good friendship sour. Think of the many things we do, what your brother, sister, friend, uncle did out of anger, was it worth it?
We all at some point could have felt trapped sponsored by nature but that’s life and the bitter pill it can at times give us, we go through situation’s we couldn’t have possibly imagined or maybe you are going though that right now. We live to regret some stages, we live to say I wish, I wish I wish to certain things…
True to it also is we have had things so good we never thought we could have them someday, maybe won a gold medal, got a good job with that lesser qualification, won a jackpot maybe and so on, oh how it felt so good to be in the moment. Can you attest to this, oh I can.
Here’s to life and living, controlling that anger, taking our time before putting up that act, hey Miss Thang, heard me? re-connect with yourself for their is power within you to fight that anger no matter the circumstance and yes, you can do it, don’t worry about who is saying what against you, don’t worry who is framing you and besides, you and me know too well that life is way too too short to live with all that anger or trying to repair some ‘framed’ news and besides, news gets to fade in no time. I understand certain situations are way too much, we are provoked badly and it feels good holding on to anger against that person but try to get over it. Help is all around us and you can still have that joy, peace that you have always dreamt of putting at the back of your mind that as long as we journey on, staff will make us angry but we will surely handle it well.
All the best as you make sure that the SUN doesn’t go Down with the anger, at least I will not hold on to anger, it DAMAGES.
