I was sat backseat during a car ride today with my mother and my brother driving along the coast. The conversation between the two of them, where I merely gazed out the window and threw in my piece here and there, evolved into concepts, big words, challenging beliefs and criticism. This is not an uncommon transition for discussions to make between the members of my household.
The thing that most struck me about this interaction was the line "if you think these concepts aren't complicated you're daft" (I will not name names because I'm a lovely daughter and sister but if you guess correctly you'll win a prize). It really got me thinking how we choose whether a concept or a relationship or a state of being is going to be complicated or not. Like anything, if you give it a substantial amount of energy it will grow and if complications is what you think will happen, congratulations you're now a master manifester.
When understandings are short and comprehension is limited 'complicated' tends to be a popular label. Next time you consider something to be complicated make note of why that is and see if it's just because your insight on the issue is lacking. Then, to return it back to being straightforward, ask questions, stay curious and be open to discovering the essence of it and watch the complexity dissolve.
Like a rescue dog you'll only learn their personality if you spend time with them and once you know the ins and outs of their quirks they no longer confuse or perplex you. Same goes for issues you consider 'complicated'.
Life is not meant to be a challenge, nor is it meant to be complicated so get familiar with the unfamiliar and be okay knowing you don't know everything. Being human is chaotic enough without you trying to overthink everything.
