You’ve got to try. You cant just sit around and do nothing. If you wanna take care of your problems, do it for yourself, do it to be healthy. If somebody close to you is upset about something about themselves, encourage them to do something constructive about it and show them that youre there for them and that you fully support their decision. Don’t talk them out of it, don’t bullshit them, don’t tell them they’re perfect and they don’t need change. Let them do what they wanna do. Be a friend, be supportive. There comes a time when you have to face the truth. Santa claus isn’t real, and sometimes people do need to change.
People are afraid of themselves, of their own reality; their feelings most of all. People talk about how great love is, but that’s bullshit. Love hurts. Feelings are disturbing. People are taught that pain is evil and dangerous. How can they deal with love if they’re afraid to feel? Pain is meant to wake us up. People try to hide their pain. But they’re wrong. Pain is something to carry, like a radio. You feel your strength in the experience of pain. It’s all in how you carry it. That’s what matters. Pain is a feeling. Your feelings are a part of you. Your own reality. If you feel ashamed of them, and hide them, you’re letting society destroy your reality. You should stand up for your right to feel your pain.
Jim Morrison (via psych-facts)
I love that moment. When you’re on a long car ride, or listening to music, or reading. And you completely zone out. You forget your troubles, and everyone around you. You’re focused on that one thing, and that one thing only. You’re content, and everything seems peaceful.
