Last night I was trawling ABC iview for things to watch, and I came across a show called Kiki and Kitty. At first I thought it was a really fucking weird show; I mean it’s about a girl whose vagina becomes like an imaginary friend to her, so naturally, it’s going to be very left of field (which is great, don’t get me wrong). Then as I continued watching it, some lessons became rather evident that I felt like I resonated with. You see, Kiki (the woman) gets in trouble by Kitty (her vagina personified) doing some ‘risky’ things, if you will. Long story short, Kitty gets Kiki to realise that she needs to stop being so ‘nice’; such a ‘good’ person. Kiki then goes on a mission to do what she wants to do, and what makes her happy; rather than trying to be a good person to everybody else, because in the long run, you lose yourself; and ultimately, you lose your happiness. I think this is a great lesson to be learnt for us all…and more importantly, me at the moment. After watching that show, I feel like I’m tired of always being a good person. I mean I’m not perfect, and we all make mistakes, and we all hurt people accidentally, but sometimes I just want to get wild angry (as opposed to my usual silent angry); sometimes I want to tell people to fuck off when I’m not in the mood to deal with them, or if they say something that upsets me; sometimes I just want to be a good person to me. As much as I preach about self-care…I’m also not the best at it. Something to work on for sure 🙂
But…onwards and upwards I say. I’m nearing my 30th birthday…and I just know it’s going to be the start of my best years ever! (I’m one of those weirdos who is actually looking forward to turning 30 rather than most who dread it).
Anyway, if you’re into weird shit, and would like a laugh (and a possible realisation that you too need to stop being such a good person to other people)…then have a gander of this show.
