Clouds with silver linings are still clouds. But it is quite therapeutic to know that pleasure doesn’t just help compensate for pain, it can actually grow out of it.
Shit happens; it’s a part of life. There’s no two ways about it. You can’t protect yourself from all the bad stuff, no matter how hard you try. You’ve got to experience life, and that means all of it. The good, the bad. And all the shit in between.
Don’t try and avoid it, don’t let your life mottos be full of “don’ts”. Go out, get hurt, feel things. When the shit things happen; you’ll deal with it. Build a bridge and get over it. And when you heal, you’ll understand why you broke.
People say there’s too much risk in loving, but I think there’s to much risk in not. Do everything you’ve ever wanted and stop stressing the what ifs, could haves or would haves.
It’s life, it is what it is. Shits going to happen. It’s going to get complicated. People are going to relapse. We’ll need time outs. We’re going to be weak. We’re going to be strong. We’re going to loose our shit and yell for people to get the fuck out of our lives. We’re going to break down and beg some people to stay in our lives. Some days we’re going to feel everything at once. Other days, nothing at all. We’re going to be in some bad places, we’re going be in amazing ones. We’re going to get on our knees crying and hurting and begging for help. We’re going to get on our knees and pray just so say thank you. We’re going to have moments when we know exactly what we want, and we’re sure. We’re going to have moments when we legit have no idea what we want and we’re confused. This life shit isn’t a movie, and I think sometimes we forget that.
