An intimate relationship does not banish loneliness. Only when we are comfortable with who we are can we truly function independently in a healthy way, can we truly function within a relationship. Two halves do not make a whole when it comes to a healthy relationship: it takes two wholes.
It is important to expect nothing, to take every experience, including the negative ones, as merely steps on the path, and to proceed.
The sad truth is that the truth is sad.
We’re so self-important. So arrogant. Everybody’s going to save something now. Save the trees, save the bees, save the whales, save the snails. And the supreme arrogance? Save the planet! Are these people kidding? Save the planet? We don’t even know how to take care of ourselves; we haven’t learned how to care for one another. We’re gonna save the fuckin’ planet? … And, by the way, there’s nothing wrong with the planet in the first place. The planet is fine. The people are fucked! Compared with the people, the planet is doin’ great. It’s been here over four billion years … The planet isn’t goin’ anywhere, folks. We are! We’re goin’ away. Pack your shit, we’re goin’ away. And we won’t leave much of a trace. Thank God for that. Nothing left. Maybe a little Styrofoam. The planet will be here, and we’ll be gone. Another failed mutation; another closed-end biological mistake.
Life’s philosophy. There’s never a right time, just fucking do it.
Today’s Mantra: If They’re Dragging You Down, Get Some Distance
It’s not just about removing the bad though. You need to simultaneously seek others who lift you up. Look for mentors, people you want to be like (not look like) and people who inspire you.
Search for others who share the same interests, people who are positive and look for resources (blogs, sites, etc) that are in line with the person you want to be. You can’t control everything, but you can make attempts to make your environment (which includes the people around you) more positive.
