So finden Sie hier sozusagen ein Buch im Buch vor, used to be einer „Verschachtelung“ gleicht, die es eigentlich gar nicht gibt. Denn gäbe es sie tatsächlich, dann gäbe es ganz sicher keine individual mehr, die dazu im Stande gewesen wäre, diese vermeintlich geglaubte so schreckliche „Realität“ aufzuschreiben, da sie unannehmbar wäre, so dass guy sie gar nicht mehr ertragen könnte. So ist das hier die Darstellung einer Fiktion zum Thema: „Vertrauen ist falsch und Kontrolle ist in jedem Falle richtig, vor allem bei Nahestehenden, geliebten Personen und vor allem bei Verwandten“. Erst dann ist es uns möglich, tatsächlich eigenverantwortlich auch in seelischer Freiheit, unsere eigenen Entscheidungen treffen zu können und unser Leben so zu gestalten, wie wir es uns persönlich wünschen. Nur so können wir unseren Weg im Leben finden, der dann nur uns gehört. Die Kommunikation mit andern Menschen macht anschließend mehr Freude und lässt uns Freunde finden ohne sie gesucht zu haben. used to be das bedeutet, ist ganz einfach – die Lösung heißt Glück! Die Wiederholungen von Inhalten sind nicht zufällig sondern beabsichtigt, sowie auch der Wechsel von Imperfekt zu Präsens, um der Darstellung der Fiktion gerecht zu werden und damit aufzuzeigen, dass dies alles nur ein fiktiver Traum ist, der mit der Realität nichts zu tun hat, so - wie es eben bei den Träumen vorkommen kann.
