Things that go together…
- Coffee & Milk
- Oreo cookies & Icecream
- Gin & Tonic Water
- Banana & Nutella
- Chips & Salsa
But there are other things you can pair too, life is not just about food…
- Chair & Table
- Couch & Fluffy pillows
- Stove & Skillet
- TV & a movie
Well, I’m clearly trying to come up with some more things to pair off but I got distracted by the idea of polar opposites. Why does everything that surrounds us have to be in pairs? Polar opposites, negative-positive, black-white, girl-boy, healthy-unhealthy…and it goes on. We have two legs, arms, ears, and eyes.
I am not an expert, but I think it means balance. For example: while eating chips and salsa the only reason why the salsa is there is to get rid of the crunchiness or saltiness of the chip. Another example, a stove and a skillet – well guess what, your chicken won’t be cooked if the heat from the stove doesn’t warm up the skillet… I can keep going.
My whole point is that is not just people who need a helping hand from others, but also objects. As people, we know what to do to get the help we need and how to balance ourselves if one side is heavier than the other.
So just as milk can make coffee less bitter, someday you will find someone who will help you bring the heavier side of the balance to the middle point.
ps: yes, I am comparing people to objects. But yet again, if we compare, we need a pair, don’t we?
