The thing itself gives no value or weight to the thing. We do. We give the thing all its value, all its weight.
This pen is either a pen or a sword. This pen is revolution, or freedom, the ability to be myself, hope, maybe a way out.
The circumstance of the person who sees the thing broadens or narrows it’s worth, it’s weight.
So, what value are you attaching to things? Do you actually need them in your life? Are they causing you pain or are they setting you free?
Look at the things you value for better or for worse, and tell me what they mean to you.
