Catch Flights, Not Feelings!
"Catch Flights, Not Feelings" is a pretty popular phrase, in fact, it's usually a part of my everyday conversations. I recall having a conversation with one of my travel buddies and he said "Catch Flights, Not Feelings" was a dumb phrase used by hurt people who are lonely. It was at that moment that I realized not everyone thought of it in the way I had coined the phrase to myself.
According to Urban Dictionary, it means: When you rather travel and visit other cities than to get feelings for someone. But when it comes out of my mouth, it has a totally different meaning.
My use of "Catch Flights, Not Feelings" had absolutely nothing to do with not wanting to catch feelings for someone, in fact, it's quite the opposite. I believe in putting out and receiving only positive energy, so when someone or something threatens to fill my space with negative energy and vibes, I don't feed into it. In other words, I'd rather catch a flight than to sit in a space and have ill feelings about a person or situation. In all honesty, it's more like a nicer way to say "B*tch don't kill my vibe."
Our own interpretation of things can be misconstrued and/or mean something completely different from person to person. So now I wonder how often we unfairly judge people based on things they say without fulling understanding their meaning! It has definitely given me food for thought!
Until next time...Queens and Kings :)
