White Collar is on again!
Makes. My. Life.
I’m numb. Very numb. Any advice?
The mask that we all wear:
We all wear a mask, whether we admit it or not. You may like it, you may not like it. But the fact is the fact. I’m not saying the mask is a bad thing, but I’m definitely not saying it’s a good thing. The mask that we wear is not defined by the things that we have, or even the people that we are. The mask that we where is defined by what we think people want us to be. For example, you may do things you would not normally do to blend in with people around you. Sometimes those could be drugs. Other times you may just put on a face that hides your true emotion. Often times people who are going through depression or severe anxiety will project the mask of complete and total happiness. I’m not saying that this is always a lie, but when I am saying is that more times than not, it is a coping mechanism that the brain will project. Sometimes the person is not even aware of their mask. Happy times, it is completely intentional, and done to hide the true emotion from loved ones. I know there were many years that I projected my mask of happiness and stability to the entire world. Then every night I would come home and it would fall apart. Maintaining this façade is extremely difficult, and extremely energy consuming. I guess what I am trying to say in this post is that if you have a mask that you are projecting to the world, be aware of it. It is extremely stressful and extremely difficult to do. In the end, your true colors will always show through.
How little we really know…
“True wisdom comes to us when we realize how little we know about life, ourselves, and the universe” -Socrates. Who would have thought someone from so long ago could be so right. There is absolutely no way we will ever be able to know ‘everything’. But in all honesty, why would we want to? We are living in a world where we constantly strive to know more and more, which in my opinion is a good thing. That constant desire to learn and hunger for knowledge has gotten us to where we are today. Thinking outside of the box and realizing how much we have to learn. We will never ever be able to harness all the knowledge of the universe, because there will always be more to learn. Plus, as a good friend of mine once said: “If I mastered every language and learned everything, my tomorrow would be pretty boring.”. I just want to bring that idea forward. Once we all realize how little we know, we have achieved wisdom.
Tonight’s post: Heartbreak
Heartbreak… It’s perhaps the only problem in life that man hasn’t found a solution to (other than death). I’ve had my heart broken just once at this point. It’s a long, painful process. The only solution that I’ve found is time. Drinking won’t help, cutting won’t help, drugs won’t help. The only possible solution you’ll ever find is time. Time to compose yourself, time to realize that you are able to live without that person. I won’t sit here and type lies, it just wastes both of our time: It will be painful, it will make you want to just lay down and cry. You also will overcome it, and you will do so with the support of your family and your friends.
