How cliche are you?
I am going to assume that a lot of us are cliche even if we don't like to admit it. We all crave happy endings, for heroes to win, and for karma to come back around. What we forget is that cliches prevent progress.
Why is this? Well cliches overuse an idea to the point where the idea just loses its' meaning. There is nothing romantic, patriotic, or passionate about an idea that no longer has meaning. And it just keeps on going to the point where forget what originality is and we're stuck. Are you cliche?
