"We're all walking around with these glossy eyes. "I'm just tired." we say. But you it's bullshit! Yes, we are tired, but it's not from lack of sleep.. We are tired of waking up with nothing to look forward to, tired of going to bed exhausted after doing a million things we find no enjoyment in doing. We're tired of this void, this emptiness that looms over us ever though our days are packed. We're tired of this loneliness that presses down on us even though we are surrounded by dozens of people. So why can't we just say it? Humans are so afraid to look into each others eyes and say "I am unhappy, I am broken, I am hopeless and fallible." We've been conditioned to associate's pain with weakness, sadness, and coldness., loneliness with unworthiness, difference with disease, as if these feelings are contagious, as if ambivalence is something not to be felt but to be feared. Well I say screw all of that. Screw forced smiles and polite handshakes and I:M fine, thank yous. Screw the fear of crying in a public place, screw the fake chipper voice, screw the lies we spit out to cover our problems. We are humans. We are meant to feel. To feel everything and feel it openly. We are not mental- we are flesh and bone. Our boiled blood courses through out cold, clammy hands. We are intricate and beautiful and we should never hide our human parts, because if we do, then what's left to show?"
