Life is a bitch sometimes but we still gotta love it, its the only option if you really think about it. Shit happens, you hurt you get over it. You move on..... more shit happens. More pain. More happiness. Thats why at the end of the day, you have GOT to relax and enjoy the small things - anything that brings you joy, feel it, revel in it, love it. Love imperfect people perfectly. Stop waiting for a fairy tale. And never ever hold on to negative feelings, feel them and let them flow away naturally. Life is too short to be mad, there are no do-overs or second chances (in this lifetime at least). Sometimes, when you hold on to the past you miss out on the future, sometimes people hurt you but dont mean to, sometimes life doesnt pan out the way you had expected....
There is no rule book to life. This blog post is filtered, fuck it, here is what I really want to say:
I feel like the more I go through life, the more I realize life isnt meant to be lived within the cookie cutter template society provides us. Society tells us to share as kids, listen to our parents, grow up well and make our parents proud. Get an education, fall in love, get married. Have babies. What a joke. Seriously?! That shit sounds boring as hell. Maybe its just my overpowering inner rebel that makes me want to run in the other direction and pray for society and not follow in line but the way I look at it.... societys ways are not workin out all that well so who the fuck are you to tell me how to live.
Were told not to judge people, but then society judges us. Were told to love people, but when we love more than more person at one time, were percieved as a bad person. Were told to be "free" but then we are controlled on every possible level. Society pulls us in from a very young age, through media, through our parents, through school. And then moulds us into what/who they want to mass produce (a dumbed down version of them perhaps). They put a shiny layer of pretty paint on it to fool us and then begins to suck the light/love/life out of us year by year. The show us what they want us to see, but keep the real information hidden. For example, did you know when you sign a marraige contract, the courts have the right to refuse you a divorce?!?! What. The. Fuck.
Do you ever feel like the whole world is waiting for something to happen? That everyone is miserable but wont do anything about it? I feel like the world is getting boring...not becuase there isnt enought stimulation for humans, but that there isnt enough stimulation coming into this world through human beings anymore. People are being flattened and boxed in, both physically and mentally.. I told my best friend the other day (one of the craziest friend I have) "I just want to dance in the rain and have sex on rooftops, is that reeeeeally soo much to ask?!" You know what she said to me in response? "Yea it kinda is, you'll get sick." Wooooaaaaah, was that ever a slap in the face of reality for me....kinda made me wanna slap her in the face, shake her and yell "WAKE UP!!!!!!" I mean, the statement was somewhat of a joke, but her answer was serious. Too serious, waaaay too serious.
Life is so complicated. Anyone who doesnt realize love and pain go hand in hand, hasnt experienced real love or is not aware of it. Its not to say love should be painful all the time, but to really love someone is to open your heart to them and give them a spray bottle of alcohol......and trust them not to spray. Every single person in life will hurt you at one point, (whether its your children saying hurtful words they really dont mean in a fit of hormonal rage, or your significant other unknowingly neglecting a feeling you felt was valid) even the ppl who love you the most will hurt you at some point. So as Bob Marley said, you just have to find the people worth suffering for (and those would be the ones who live their lives trying NOT to hurt you, knowing it may still happen but they give their best efforts to not let that happen).
So I guess what I am getting at is the idea of love, freedom and forgiveness...and that society supports neither. So what if I want to dance in the rain and have sex on roof tops?! What is so wrong with open, honest, loving relationships?! The simple answer is, people are afraid. Afraid of what they dont overstand, and afriad of falling apart, in societys standards. Afraid of being judged and afraid of getting hurt.
So in the words of one of my ladies: fuck a love life, just love your life. Dont worry about what happens next, just love now. I hope everyone has the courage to love....... its the only way to really live.
