My Chemical Romance

I just finished guiding my students; it is a national holiday, yet there I was making the sweet Yemeni child who was obviously bigger than me comprehend the first subtopic of Chemistry.  I attempted to make the lesson as interesting as possible, so neither of us would sleep!  Just kidding.

The particles of matter – I likened the structure to the social relationships in the world.  Not that kind of social relationships, but any kind for the matter.

Negatives in the world attract, whereas positives repel.  The things is that the Law of the Universe always is at work to shift everything to balance.  With this equilibrium is a state of homeostasis that is achieved.  A state in which nothing is neither too hot nor too cold, neither too big nor too small.  Where all is stashed away in a certain balance.

When one has too much of a charge, it pulsates with energy, first gaining momentum and then colliding with other particles in the neighborhood.  That is just how we are.

Energetic and enthusiastic individuals frolicking with energy tend to move about more.  They enjoy meeting new people and are more sociable in essence.

Those who keep to themselves most of the time – or all of the time, even – are usually withdrawn and do not confide much.  The stance goes on, until one of them picks up energy from somewhere else.  Then he will start radiating with much fun and excitement, and the whole place will light up because of him.

The point is, would you rather be the energetic particle radiating your love and affection and excitement to the rest of your surroundings?
