Cassandra Complex

In the movie, 12 Monkeys, Doctor Kathryn Railly reminds us of the definition of the Cassandra Complex: The foreknowledge of future events with the impotence to do anything about it.

I know something bad is going to happen.  I’m helpless to change it.

Might as well enjoy the ride.

Catch you on the flip side.

    12 Monkeys awesome movie! Brad Pitt harassing Bruce Willis in the asylum was so funny😂😂😂

    Great minds, buddy😉 I wrote about The Cassandra Complex awhile back. It is a neat phenomena. I’ve tapped into this plenty times during my life- As a young person marks you as an old soul because you see “shit and move” and try to warn your peers to follow suit not out of fear but to avert pain and heartache. Oh well🤗 drama free is the way to be😊

    CC has helped me in the job market – especially corporate America. When the signs appear I make moves to get out of Dodge.

    1. My favourite movie by far. Top notch acting and cool sci-fi story.

      I did not know you wrote about the Cassandra Complex but I would love to read what you wrote.

      I’m glad it has saved you in the past.

      I try to keep intimately personal stuff out of the blog but today I had a feeling of doom that was so strong it clouded my ability to write about anything else.
