I treat people like cakes. Cakes are way more delicious of course, but that’s not the point right now.
When I see a person – I see a cake that he can become when he’s already “baked”, even if now it is just a piece of dough. I like to see that potential, I like to see people that will evolve into something else during their life time journey..
“Treat people as they are, and they remain that way. Treat them as though they are already what they can be, and you help them become what they are capable of becoming.”
That’s great thought, no doubt. Probably it even helps to the creatures around you, but there’re some questions coming up..
Should you be staying hungry while the dinner is still cooking? Should you stand in the kitchen and monitor the process? Wouldn’t it be more logical to go to take the cake once the food is actually ready, instead of passing up and down the street where the bakery shop is at 3 in the morning? Sounds stupid, aha..
It’s possible that a bit later everything I see about the person will change due to his choices and decisions, and instead of a cherry cake, he’ll become suddenly a napoleon or a cheese-cake.. or a cupcake!
.. What to do if a pastry cook forgets that I must have a cherry cake and not another one, oh no.. what’s then?
