It starts so young, and I’m angry about that. The garbage we’re taught. About love, about what’s “romantic.” Look at so many of the so-called romantic figures in books and movies. Do we ever stop and think how many of them would cause serious and drastic unhappiness after The End? Why are sick and dangerous personality types so often shown a passionate and tragic and something to be longed for when those are the very ones you should run for your life from? Think about it. Heathcliff. Romeo. Don Juan. Jay Gatsby. Rochester. Mr. Darcy. From the rigid control freak in The Sound of Music to all the bad boys some woman goes running to the airport to catch in the last minute of every romantic comedy. She should let him leave. Your time is so valuable, and look at these guys—depressive and moody and violent and immature and self-centered. And what about the big daddy of them all, Prince Charming? What was his secret life? We dont know anything about him, other then he looks good and comes to the rescue.Deb Caletti, The Secret Life of Prince Charming (via quotes-shape-us)
Why is that some people believe that happiness is from the reaction of others to your life? Being around others, believing that they will always be there to fix your problems……..Empathy, what is it, and why do we do this. There’s so much that others can understand of a difficult situation of another person’s, but never fully understanding what that other person is going through. What exactly can a person do, if not talked to of or about the situation, and that they should stop with their lives to help with yours. We are allowed to be selfish it’s a basic human feeling, needing, and wanting, but when can we realize that our selfishness outshines others. Why do people expect for others to drop what they are doing in their daily lives to help with yours. Why is it, that the lack of communication reflects on the others that you say are not being a good friend, because that person doesn’t say anything. Blame others, it’s easier to do, because of the want of not seeing it as just your problem. That self That perhaps they should try harder to be a better friend, to get the situation. But in reality, others have lives as well, traveling, going to school, working, and overall living their lives. Because the selfish thing to do, and overall the right thing at times is to make sure your happiness is being made by you. Not by others, but by you. Because of all, being dependent on others will lead you to disappoint, and sadness. It’s great to depend on friends, and family, but not too much. Happiness comes from within, and healing does as well. Don’t put others as the scapegoat,just because you can’t handle the situation at this current moment now. “Pain is meant to be felt”, with feeling pain we do not become the person that we are meant to be. Don’t blame others, look at yourself first before pointing the fingers at others.
