She was trained to sing by the finest teachers her parents could find. Every day she began her life with the scales, running up and down from the stratosphere to the subterranean in pitch. She learned the repertoire of every nation and worked tirelessly to master each language. She held her breath every chance she got. In the end, she became a teller, humming while she counted.

Conditioned, is that what we all are?
We remain in this state due to society and it’s standards.
Society wants us to be conditioned, so that we will all remain “happy”
I say instead of being conditioned.
I say we remain unfurnished.

Are we conditioned as children? Don’t slouch,sit up straight, eat your veg, tidy your room. Like racers in a relay race, passing the conditioned baton onto our children with the same instructions. Carrots do not make you see in the dark do they?

I have been conditioned to be the good daughter, the good wife, the good neighbor. Not really bad conditioning when you think about it. Better

We’re all conditioned to be apart of something. We’re all conditioned to stay in our place, and not to run or be free. As adults, we’re conditioned to not jump up and down, or run through the store, for the sheer purpose of ‘just because.’ Conditioning is good for your hair, not for your soul. Jump. Jump because it’s what’s fun, not because it’s what you’re supposed to do.

He had been conditioned to blush whenever someone yelled in displeasure, as if the world’s discomfort had been his fault. After many years of being nice and dying of embarrassment, he decided that he’d better make the world suffer anyway.

We’re conditioned at an early age how to talk, think, dress. Then, during some bogus ceremony where we get a piece of paper and license to join the world of adults, are told to make something of ourselves, make something of this planet.
But we remain in our candy-coated shells, too afraid to show the real us that bubbles beneath the surface.
Conditioned, as we are, not to fail.
Not to stand out.

We’re all transformed.Conditioned,to believe that it is necessary to bow down to this Almighty power.And the more we dive deeper into it,we lose ourselves,to this greater force.Where will be 5 years from now?It’s hard to say.

We have been conditioned to believe things that are told to us by people in authority. No this is not a rant against governments or leaders, it just seems to be that we now prefer to not ask questions and accept everything told to us.

Conditioned is to be prepared and trained. Broken in to do something.
Sadly we do not have the luxury to be conditioned in our walk of life.

As I washed my hair, I felt around for the bottle of hair product that made my hair soft and silky to the touch. I poured a gracious amount of conditioner and began to massage beauty into my hair, taking care to not be too rough.

i was really, by my family and by my friends and by knowing he did not want me…
i was conditioned until i was greasy and then i was dropped and abandoned
i always was so delicously inhuman after that
ask every heart i broke because the noise sounded nice

Why is that building air-conditioned to freeze its occupants? This is the newest, most sophisticated building on campus, and it is the least flexible, the most wasteful. It is just grotesque. This building is a monstrosity.
By Taddy on 08.13.2009
We are conditioned to think like lambs to slaughter. We are conditioned by the government and friends and family. We condition our selves to be numb. It’s frightening how conditioned we can become, we allow ourselves to become. Conditioning is cheating the world.

that is what we all are – conditioned to exist in this goofy world

My conditioned response to the sound of a bell, to leave the classroom, to answer the phone, to run to the door, to remove my keys from the ignition, to shut the door, to look for the ice cream man, to note the time on the quarters.

the conditioning test.

She opened her eyes to see him. Her master, creator. She did not stop to think that she was a woman fully grown and did not have any memories before him. She didn’t think about what he was asking her to do. She just DID. Reaching out, wiping minds, reducing memories to her own state. She only served him. Life meant nothing less, nothing more.

I conditioned myself to sleep in an asphyxiation of what seemed peculiar at my first vision. One’s state of mind became different to my sense of direction, sight and smell. I could literally taste how they felt, with no escape, trapped inside a glass cabinet with no exit, and with also no entrance.
By Chad Male on 08.13.2009
I stood in the shower, letting the conditioner soak into my hair while shaving my legs and armpits. I personally don’t think there’s anything wrong with having hair on your body, but everyone else does. In this way, my hygiene habits have been as controlled as the tips of my hair dying to split.

condition of economy is bad but that external conditions should not affect our innerconditions.A state of balance can be reached once the confusion clears and it requires patience

By Melody on 08.13.2009
I conditioned my hair after I washed it. It felt good to condition it as I was camping for a week. The trip was good. My hair was in need of conditioning.
By Deb on 08.13.2009
We have been conditioned not to ask questions. We have been conditioned to believe those who sit above us in positions of power. We have been contitioned to believe that we cannot make mistakes. We have been contitioned to believe that we must get a well paying job, buy a home, and settle down for the rest of our lives. We have been contitioned to live out a lie.

She was conditioned at puberty to submit to men. Her father, brother, husband, schoolmaster. This was her priority. Her only reason for existing, and she believed it with all her heart.

I was conditioned to the fact that God exist. Whether you like it or not you ARE conditioned to this, whether if be true or not, everyone is ‘taught’ these “FACTS.”

conditioned for heart break, for lover’s battle, for the war and the scars ahead. conditioned.
By lauren on 08.13.2009
i conditioned my hair today, it felt good. i like conditioner so much better than shampoo, i always feel like i treated my hair to ice cream after i condition it, and conditioned hair just looks and smells so much nicer, don’t you think?
By Courtney Tomlinson on 08.13.2009

I’ve been conditioned to think that love is all that matters. Growing up in a household where love was not easily expressed has left me with a void I am constantly trying to fill. I’ve ruined so many things and gave up on so many things because of this. Once you’ve been conditioned to think one way, its hard to change it, and its almost impossible to think about anything else besides it.

Pity for the show dogs, pity for the horses, the beauty queens and red-flag bulls. The A-list celebrities and the elite posse of any kind,
all they are is conditioned.
