There’s so much more to life than what you’re feeling now.
Sometimes you end up never speaking to someone who meant the world to you again. And that’s okay. You cope and you survive. Don’t let your losses keep you back from new gains.
Sometimes you find someone so beautiful, so hurt, that you can’t figure out if one is the reason for the other. All you knowis that you wish you could hurt instead; take all their pain and make it your own. And so you make yourself suffer just to be a little closer.
Sunshine all the time makes a desert
Spend your free time the way you like, not the way you think you’re supposed to. Stay home on New Year’s Eve if that’s what makes you happy. Skip the committee meeting. Cross the street to avoid making aimless chitchat with random acquaintances. Read. Cook. Run. Write a story.
If people sat outside and looked at the stars each night, I bet they’d live a lot differently. When you look into infinity, you realize there are more important things than what people do all day.
