In the Middle


What does that really mean? Is it a comfy place where we all fit in? Is it middle ground where we agree? Is it where we might actually find world peace? OK that last one is incredibly doubtful. Too many people aren’t comfortable in the middle. We all want to stand out in some way. I’m no different in that aspect. 

We get interrupted in the middle of things (as in just now when I was asked to get a second dose of medication.) For me, that means losing track of everything I was doing, so it can be rather annoying. We’ve all been in the middle of a crowd (and I find that quite terrifying since I despise crowds.) We have a middle class at a mental war with the lower and upper classes (and how insulting is it to be called lower class by the way?) 

I guess, in life, I can be comfortable “In the middle”. Being on top or at the bottom seems to be even more stressful than where I am now.

Five Minute Friday:

Thursday, a one-word prompt will be announced on my blog at 10pm EST.

  1. I hate being in the middle of a crowd, too! Thanks for letting us into the middle of your ramblings!

    1. I’m horrible in crowds lol The only good thing about my youngest getting to high school was the fact that there would be no more school orientations until college. Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. You covered a lot of “middle ground” with this post! 🙂 I don’t like crowds one bit either, or being in crowded places. I don’t like being interrupted when I’m in the middle of things. This is an interesting weekly writing prompt. I just might take it up and see how it goes!

    1. It is fun. I look forward to it. Even when I wasn’t posting (for the longest time, I just could not find the time evenwhen it was staring me in the face.) I read them.
