Five Minutes Freewrite | pediculous

So, I was doing a freewrite with a selected word, which happens to be 'pediculous.' Here's what I came up with. -- When I saw the word, the first thing my mind went to was what happened a few years ago. My niece, who was about eight at the time had lice in her hair. No one knew about it. She was getting skinny all of a sudden and we didn't know what was up. Not until one day. Her mom (my sister) was combing her hair and something fell off. Behold it was lice. Her hair had to be cut and the nasty thing gotten rid of. Have you ever had lice? Perhaps you've never had one in your hair but you certainly have had one in your life, one way or the other. Those humans who are there for nothing else other than to suck us dry. They milk all of our energy and leave us emotionally exhausted. It might be family members or friends. And the sad part is that these kind of people make it about you so much that you won't realise what's going on. Not until it's too late. They take and take till nothing is left and they move on to the next person. End of five minutes. -- I should do something about my typing skills, don't you think? I seem to write so little in minutes these days. So slow. Maybe it's knowing that I timed myself. Back to what I was on about earlier. Most times, we don't identify these kinds of people till it's too late. That's why it's necessary to think about ourselves first sometimes. It gives you a different kind of perspective. You see things more clearly and that helps you recognise the manipulative human patterns, especially when they've been there for a while. Agree or disagree? Tell me about it. #writing #freewrite #psychology #life
