Disappearing Act

Do you ever wish that you were invisible? That you could just blend into the background and no one could see you there. That instead of having to deal with everything that happens, you could just fade away and become nothing. I do. More often than I care to admit.

I don't do it, mostly because there is that overwhelming sense of responsability....

My dear Coffee...I'm going to say something overly simplistic so please forigive me. I do not mean to belittle whatever you are going through which prompted your post...

Whatever you are dealing with, unpleasant as it may be, the best way to get past it is to deal with it. Then move on. I hope you soon forget about ever wanting to be invisible - why deprive others of the pleasure of knowing YOU?

I often wish this, Coffee. Usually as a result of my mouth working faster than my brain, allowing some pathetic excuse for a statement to escape it's proper place behind the tonsils. And by that time it's too late. Then I'm embarrassed, which is an appropriate punishment for not being a little more in control of what I was saying.

Instead of fading away and diappearing into nothing I would agree with Mr. Nubians thought that the best way to deal with these moments is to talk them out and move past whatever it is that's got you down. Getting started is the hard part, but once you start you can feel the relief taking over. I would listen to that overwhelming sense of responsibility you mention. That's the best compass you have for getting out of a problem. I encounter too many chameleons in life. Its nice when you can meet a colorful creature like yourself, Coffee. Your color enrichens many lives.

I don't do it, mostly because I don't know how to.

Oh there's that whole avoiding responsibility thing, pretending that if nobody notices, there won't be any consequences. But that trick never works. I'd do it for fun if I could, but that's all.

Everyday and everynight...and just to be a fly on the wall sometimes.

Before I retired, I was lucky enough to reach a level where I could do what you are talking about Miss Coffee. For the most part...just hang out in the background (or shadows if you prefer) and watch what happened around me without really being a part of it. Keep track of and avoid the idiots. Monitor and mentor my people, as required. And when my sense of responsibility hit the right level and kicked in...I could step in and make things happen, get them back on track or stop them from going terribly wrong. And when things were right again, it was back into the shadows I went...leaving the credit for my people. They were the ones who actually did the work anyway.

You disappeared from blogville once, Coffee Dear. I really hope your not thinking of doing it again.

There are times when becoming invisible seems like it would be a great thing,but unfortunately & that would be a crime.
