感覺色票|Feeling swatches

感覺色票
Feeling swatche
有時候我覺得,感覺像是一張張色票;當我們越經驗人生,收集的顏色就越多。
Feelings are like swatches. The more we experience life, the more colors we collect.
有輕快的,也有沈重的。而空白處,就是我們還無法理解的。
Light colors, dark colors, and the ones that we don’t understand (yet).
而理解一個人,就像是拿自己「已經有的色票」去迫近「他人想表達的色票」。
And when we are trying to understand someone, it’s like using the swatches we have now, to approach the color the other’s talking about.
就像我們在印刷、油漆時,常常會做的那件事:
It’s like what we do when we’re printing out something or painting the wall.
當我能找到自己生命中,雷同於你的感受的經驗,我就理解你了。
When I can find the experience in my life that’s similar to how you feel now, I can relate to you.
「我知道那是什麼感覺,因為我之前也經歷過!有一次⋯⋯,然後我覺得,真的是夠了!⋯⋯」
「對對對,就是那樣!」
“Yes, I know how it feels. I’ve been through similar situations.”
感覺被指認、有了歸屬,難受的也好過點了。
When the feelings are named and recognized, even the sad ones become a little bit lighter.
彷彿確認我們有著相同的感覺後,我們就是同一隊的了。
We confirm that we share the same feelings and become a team. We feel less alone and find some belongingness.
而我的經驗也因同理而擴展 —— 「啊,原來OOO的感覺跟我之前XXX的感覺是類似的啊。」
And my experience expands by relating to you – “So that’s how OOO feels, similar to what I felt before when XXX…”
我的 #d6a599 感覺色票,加上我的想像力,變成了你的 #d9b5ac 感覺色票。
My #d6a599 swatch plus my imagination becomes your #d9b5ac9 swatch.
每一次經歷一種感覺、理解一個人,就像又多收集了一張色票。
Every time I went through a feeling, related to a person, I collected another swatch.
越經歷,能理解的也越多;越理解,能表達的也越多。
The more I experienced, the more I could relate to. The more I related to, the more I could express.
有時候我無法理解你,不是因為冷漠或不夠在乎,就只是 —— 我還沒有那個色系的色票,我不知道那是什麼樣的感覺。沒有夠接近的顏色做基底,想像力也使不上力。
Sometimes I cannot understand you, not because I don’t care enough, it’s just – that I don’t have that color system yet. I don’t know how it is like to feel like that. Without a similar color as the base, imagination cannot bring me to you.
不過有一天會的。
有一天有一個人會的,不管是不是我。
But one day I may.
One day someone will.
