I'm Not Bad. I'm Just Drawn That Way.

Sometimes, what something looks like, or what something sounds like, can be misconstrued.

There's a cartoon character in the film Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988), who's been quoted by many who have seen the film.

"I'm Not Bad. I'm Just Drawn That Way."

When Jessica Rabbit (voiced by Kathleen Turner) made this statement to the classic detective, even though the words were saying that she was innocent, the way she said them still made her look...deliciously bad.

Yet, in the end, we learn she was doing what she felt she had to do for her beloved husband, Roger Rabbit, in order to protect him. Even to the point of taking "dirty pictures" of patty-cake with a man that was not her husband, and hitting Roger Rabbit over the head with a frying pan and stuffing him into a trunk of a car. All of this gave the appearance of a deceitful vixen, but Roger Rabbit was the love her of life.

We have heard, and even know, that on the surface of anything, there's always something more.

"Don't judge a book by it's cover"
"More than you bargained for"
"The grass isn't always greener"
"And that's just the tip of the iceberg"
"You've barely scratched the surface"
"Looks too good to be true"
"More than meets the eye"

On any decision where you question something, you should face your fear and investigate what lies beneath.
If you go looking for something, you just might find it. People use that saying to invoke fear. Maybe you need to find the truth. Sometimes people regret finding the truth. In either case, if it wasn't meant to be known, you wouldn't know about it. Anything that's hidden in the dark, soon comes to light.

You learn about things for a reason. You investigate for "more" for a reason. Rather the knowledge is good or bad, too much or an eye opener, it's all something to grow from.

And growing up, means growing strong, means growing free.

Until Next Time!
