Conservative or Liberated?


An old friend approached me and told that she has a confession.As i was sitting beside her waiting for words, she just gave me a hesitant look. It took time before she could open up because she thought that after lending my ears i'll look at her as a less worth person .For the first time it felt like sharing her secret was like a huge risk.After few minutes of persuading, she sheepishly utter "iriz...i'm no longer a virgin". My response was no words but a simple smile. Though i was quite moved by what i heard i tried to act like i wasn't. There was just a strike of surprise but no trace of judgement. After that, a lot of confessions from couple of friends followed and hearing them saying "iriz...i'm no longer a virgin" is just like hearing "iriz...i bought a new shirt"...no big deal. Having those liberated friends just gave me no choice but to open my mind. What is right could be different from what is real. Liberated mind opposed what is so called "traditional". I usually heard such lines like "i know what i'm doin' and at any point i'll blame no one but my self", "go for what makes you happy", "it doesn't really matter who makes the first move"... an attitude that i found so brave and i admire them for that. Since we're living in a world of opposites, of course, there we also have the league of conservatives. People who freak out when hearing such censored terms. They rely more on others perception and getting them dress seductively will be a great challenge. They are much aware about their limitations. A conscious mind for consequences. They may not make the major move but for some situations where things are better left undone at the end they lost nothing and make a dignified stand. No,they are not coward. They are controlled.In a world of temptations where enticement keeps whispering, as there are few who remains firm... i gave them my salute. Are you conservative or liberated? As long as you're human with a rational mind the answer won't really matter. Me? I'll go between(sorry,i'm not being specific).I am someone who can decide with vigor up to a precise extent.
