sometimes you wake up with a smile on your face.
sometimes, you don’t.
it doesn’t make you any less happy or any more depressed. it doesn’t make you anything. it’s like the stupid optimism litmus test. there is nothing philosophical about a glass being half full or half empty. there is just the simple matter of different people having differing perspectives, and that’s what we have to understand.
the glass is there. there’s something in it. and as a friend says, and why can’t it ever be delicious beer?!
i’ve always said life happens. accidentally or on purpose. either way, it starts.
i used to be a person who said laughter was a luxury few can afford. i don’t think it means i’ve become more depressed or anything.
au contraire actually. i used to be a lot more depressed during my laughter is a luxury few can afford phase. i’m a lot more upbeat now and i still think life just happens.
there’s no truth in optimism or pessimism. the thing is, there is. there is always something. and that’s the point. that’s the whole point.
and you either get it, or you don’t, but at the end of the day, everybody dies alone.
