It's been a rough few months and continues to be. I've been stressed, blah, blah, blah. About three weeks ago, I ran into an old high school friend. I told him how I felt that my light was fading, and he said: Oh, don't worry it'll go out!
I didn't quite know what to say, my mouth opened and closed like a guppy. I had been looking for reassuring and trite words, like: Tini, man who catch fly with chopstick accomplish anything. So I tell him I'm not feeling motivated, and he simply repeats more of the same mantra: don't worry, it's life. You know, troughs and valleys and all that.
Though I see the relevance, that we all have our ups and downs, wax on, wax off, the conversation wasn't at all helpful. I'm not hating though; I've known him since he was 13.
So, I'm sharing some inspiration and amusing sayings that I've found online.
The above two are from For the Visionaries
This one is from Sophie Calle's exhibit
. No break-up here, though.
Translation: Take care of yourself.
In a very serious tone, my sister repeated the above phrase to me one day. I hadn't laughed so hard in a long time. It's irreverent, but you know, it was the nicest thing anyone had said to me in a long time.
