I’ve talked a lot about setting limits, saying no, and finding my backbone this year, which for a Pisces is probably one of the biggest things we have to learn in life. The following story is a little out there, but I as always, I continue find my inspiration in the weirdest, cheesiest places.
That’s why you love me, right?
My high school Bestie and one of the 3 Leo friends, Jiji, can always be counted on to provide the latest in Anime entertainment. Over the last 10 years, we’ve spent countless hours reading subtitles, attempting to decipher ridiculously complicated Japanese story lines, and claiming allegiance to our favorite nerdy shows. I have the honor of introducing Jiji to Astrology and she has the honor of getting me hooked on Japanimation marketed towards 8th grade girls.
Last week, my chum brought over a new series.
“You are going to LOVE this one. It’s all about the Chinese Zodiac AND it has a kick ass single mom character,” she said.
Word. Had me at konichiwa.
In typical Anime fashion, the storyline is lighthearted and silly 95% of the time, then suddenly goes to the dark side with a twisted turn of events. When the following story came onscreen, I was immediately struck by the Piscean themes. It really shook me, honestly.
Here’s the clip. If you can bear with me, tell me what you think.
After watching this, I thought about how far I’ve gone in my life, giving things up for other people. How much of my own needs I’ve sacrificed. Would I have gone as far as the foolish traveler? I think I would have.
I felt such sadness and anger after watching this. I looked at Jiji and said, ” well, that was fucked up!”
Even if he was generous, kind and utterly selfless, I don’t want to be that foolish traveler anymore. 😦
