“I would understand this, if you were a boring person,” I told a Gemini client. “But you’re not. So why are you writing this horrible script (in regards to a girl he likes)? The girl is crazy about you. Can you not see you’re riding a wave here? Can you not ride a wave?”
It’s so common, a person is their own worst enemy. In this case, the man over-thinks, but there are a number of ways that people undo themselves.
What kills me is watching someone mess up their wave, in a situation where waves are hard to come by. That’s not what is happening in this case. I got this man’s attention. But it happens all the time. You’ve seen it and I’ve seen it.
A person can be poised on top a wave that will take them exactly where they say they want to go. They can have all the skills necessary to ride that wave…but they refuse.
