Narratives

Will you be so cruel as to reduce someone's life to a simple narrative? For even the wisest reveal their actions as a constellation of follies and banal motivations.

Just as you can summarily describe a decade of their activity with a word or two, so can you assess the trajectory and potential of their lives. But need you?

This knowledge does no one any good; not you, whose attunement quickly ascertains substance, nor the subject who cannot break from the gravity of their predilections and impulses, but instead hides away behind alternative narratives clever enough to fool themselves but not anyone who honestly scrutinizes the situation.

You need not confront anyone with knowledge, but just look away from the worst and encourage them to sensible ends, even as simple as reminding them to walk in the shoes of their grandparents who were able to retain basic alignment with nature.
