You are infected…

via Daily Prompt: Infect

 

We are all infected… But with what and by whom?

On a daily basis we come into contact with hundreds of people and hundreds of items touched by hundreds of people, so it is only natural that we are all infected…

 

There are two types of infection as I see it…

The one is emotional and the other physical.

Mental infection usually comes mostly from people we know…

 

It can be good or bad infections…

 

Good can be habits, like not consuming sugar of caffeine, because you read it can be unhealthy for you or because a friend got some illness that is provoked or worsened by it…

Or it can be the way you pronounce certain words or little things you say because a friend says it that way or uses that phrase.

It can even be a walk you take every day to see a specific someone or going to a gym because your best friend goes there too…

It can be the way you treat people compassionately and lovingly because you have brought up that way or because the way you were treated made you decide to treat people that way…

And bad mental infections can come from watching a movie with very graphic, lasting and gruesome scenes.

Or a drama that made you cry…

It can come from an accident that you had or seeing someone else in an accident…

It can come from abuse, not just verbal, but physical abuse can both infect you mentally…

 

Physical infection can come from many things and in so many forms and truth be told… We don’t even always realize it…

 

We do not realize that that 10 dollar bill I just got from the cashier has bacteria on it nor do we know what kind of bacteria…

We do not realize that the air surrounding the guy coughing behind us in the bus spreads… For example… How many times have you sprayed perfume at home and have a sibling or spouse from another room also smell it?

Well, it’s the same idea, only difference is that we do not smell a cough… Or rather, mostly we do not smell someone coughing…

How do you take your shoes off when you get home? DO you touch the sole?

If yes, just think back to the places you walked… Is it possible that a stray dog might have walked and ‘leaked’ there or even rats or birds? Hmmmmm… Makes you think doesn’t it?

How about that pen you write with?

Have you given it to clients to write with? Or colleagues?

If yes, how do you know that the person using your pen last didn’t have some or other illness?

And are you one of those people who nibble on the back of your pen or pencil when deep in thought?

 

How about that seat you are sitting in at the doctors office or any other waiting area… But specifically at the doctor…

What illness did the last person who sat there have???

Maybe… The FLU?

Or… Influenza… OR TB!!!

We don’t realize how many different bacteria we have dancing around on our skin or in our veins…

I guess some people know a little too well and tend to over do the whole cleansing thing…

Or maybe this post will cause you to do just that…

Maybe my post might even INFECT YOU!!! Mentally of course.

Fact is… We do not know… But it does make you think… How are you infected?

And when? By who or what? WITH WHAT?!

 

That’s my perspective in any case…
