Hope you guys enjoyed my previous post about my garage sale haul! :) I'll try to look for more awesome items on Saturday!
Obviously, my post for today is about fortune tellers (or psychics, whatever you wanna call them) And no, I didn't sign up to those infamous astrological slash psychic websites. A middle aged woman actually went up to me randomly outside the mall and asked if I had a few minutes to spare. It was broad daylight and her intentions seemed harmless so I stayed a bit for a chat. She then told me straight away that she's a psychic and that she's more than willing to give me a free reading - the only catch is that I have to tell my friends all about it (and I did, but not because she asked me to. we'll talk about that later) and that I should take note of everything she'll say very carefully. I have always wanted to try it out so I agreed, I had nothing to lose anyway.
Long story short, she actually amazed and crept me out at the same time. She mentioned a lot of things which I've never told anyone, not even my bestfriend nor boyfriend. After indirectly showing off her skills (or black magic, as others would call it) she then proceeded to tell me about my future. She also mentioned something about my current relationship with my long distance boyfriend, which gave me a very reassuring feeling I must say.
Now, here's the problem, I've become obsessed. I didn't waste my time looking for bogus psychics on the internet, I want HER. Before going home, I always pass by the spot where she approached me but I never saw her again. At first, I thought she wanted to give me a free reading as a sign of promotion; but then I realised that she didn't even give me her contact details - nothing at all.
That happened a month ago and I still constantly think about it. I told my friend about it and he said that his grandma also has special abilities with those kind of stuff, but she never shared her so-called gift with her family.
Despite that incident, I still believe that everything that happens in this world is caused by our actions. Do I believe in fate? Yes, but to a certain point. Say for example, you met your significant other at your university - that's fate. But you would have never met him if you decided not to go to college, or went somewhere else. What happens to us are still the roots of our actions, and that is why I'm trying really hard to forget everything that the psychic told me. Also, if you're wondering whether I think she's a fake or not, I would say that I'm not sure. I'm a very skeptical person and I never believe in anything unless I can prove it.
I know a lot of people who are extremely obsessed about knowing their future (I know heaps who have consulted different fortune tellers!) and I think I've somehow figured out the reason why. When a person who claims to have gifts tell you all these wonderful things which you've been wanting to hear since day one, you tell yourself to believe it. Of course, you'll eventually crave for more details and more readings, which I think is very unhealthy.
