Sometimes it feels like there is a hole in my head and every good thought or feeling that I ever had has escaped into space. The best of me has leaked out and been replaced with a humorless mist and the kind of ghosts that whisper everything but encouragement. I wander around blind and empty with no positivity whatsoever. Reminding myself that this is not a unique moment in human history, I press on.
Most people have secret sorrows that they refuse to share with the rest of the world, and we call them cold or angry when they are only sad. When someone is sad, truly sad, you are at a loss on how to reach them. And, when you are that unreachable person, you feel exactly the same about them. Like a dog shot into space, we are often unable to comprehend or express the full extent of what is happening to us. However, you can rest assured, that someone has felt it before. You might never meet them but they are out there and managed to persevere. It doesn’t matter if you are scared, lonely, deceived by a friend, or just realized that you will never be with that person you truly love. You can find a way to continue on.
The hardest thing about having a dream is living with whatever happens to you when it dies.
