Take care…

„Take care of the things that matter to you!”. Today, I got this advice from someone I love very much.

I do take care of the things that matter to me. Or at least I try to. As much as I can. As much as it is under my control. For I see that control is nothing but an illusion. And things change. I choose to believe that they always change for the better. That there are downs because amazing ups will follow. I want to believe that the taste of a bitter tear is just a brief moment in a sea of sweet tears of joy.

Why have we stopped crying tears of joy? When did we become so obsessed with controlling our emotions that we only cry when we can no longer contain pain? Why are we so good at making ourselves miserable? At denying our biggest dreams and desires until we no longer know them anymore? At lying to ourselves and to the others? At behaving like it is expected of us? Just because it’s ‘inappropriate’?… Or because we are too afraid that if we show ourselves the way we really are we will no longer be accepted, loved, ‘appropriate’?…

  1. It’s a world of lie and deceit, a world of ‘politically correct’ which by all means stands for ‘fuck you over with a large smile on my face’. In such world, the bearer of the truth is a weirdo, an abnormal person, a possibly dangerous person for they could always break the mirrors of illusion and expose the fakes around them.

    Emotions are Achille’s heel for nowadays’ people and as such they must be eradicated. Make this world a sea of smiling poker faces. A sea of non-thinking Anonymous nobodies.

    Or we could just revert to being true humans, exposing and taking down the fake, everywhere. Can we do it…? Are we gonna do it before it’s too late…?
