speaking of suffering.
to love is to suffer. to avoid suffering, one must not love. but then, one suffers from not loving. therefore, to love is to suffer; not to love is to suffer; to suffer is to suffer. to be happy is to love. to be happy, then, is to suffer, but suffering makes one unhappy. therefore, to be happy, one must love or love to suffer or suffer from too much happiness. woody allen
this paradox rings true tonight, after a day spent haunted in an array of disappointment. we got the blues. we don’t know why we allow misteps of others to sadden us so – it’s times like these when bras and ranties begins wonder if perhaps we’re simply doing it all wrong. that maybe we simply just feel too much. that maybe we just love too much.
every human, bras and ranties included (slash especially) has his or her own shit to work on. not a soul out there is perfect, life having left its dents and scrapes since day one of living it. so why can’t we talk straight with each other? why are we living quarantined, armored cavalry of bullshit, scene and social climbing? where did all the real people go?
