There’s a certain warmth that comes with metaphors. It makes it easier to handle the truth. It makes it more simple to describe your situations.
There’s a time, though, when you realise that you can’t carry on using them. They drive you crazy. They make you believe the wrong thing. They cause you to tread on unprotected grounds in which people say they understand but they really don’t because of a thing called interpretation.
Just don’t use metaphors.
