The act of dissonance

I’ve been thinking a lot about Aesop’s fox and the grapes lately. Isn’t it fascinating that this simple story explains the most complicated type of psychology? My current cognitive dissonance has been robbing my sleep, stealing my appetite, and gradually pulling me towards indifference.

The apple surely tastes good, but what is it that I’ve done to deserve this tasty apple, that it even wants to be eaten?

On the other hand, isn’t it dissonance that ultimately makes us feel alive and encourages us to find solutions and create new ideas? Is it a way to teach us that, no matter what, we won’t easily get what we want?

Four question marks after only 110 words.

Please tell me if this is good or bad.

I smell burning.

The dissonance comes with spikes, which cause dizziness and headache. Dissonance always comes with a war declaration. In my case, it’s a war between courage and cowardice.

Today is a truce. The battle is nowhere close to an end. The combination of all those different musical notes in my head still sounds terrible. I’m not sure if I’m in the mood to fix it tonight. Cowardice goes to war! How ironic…

It’s always easy to blame others who have added a dissonant tone to your life. Ever thought that it might be your fault for letting them?

I know, sometimes, a dissonant tone is irresistible.
