“We’re fools whether we dance or not, so we might as well dance.”[my art blog dedicated to everyday muses]
<hippypost> After a significant conversation with a friend of mine, I decided I’m going to stop being so closed off, and try to tone down my cynicism— specifically when it comes to love. I hold so much animosity for the people who have hurt me in the past, and it’s time for me to seriously let it go. Life is too too short for that shit. </hippypost>
Living with life is very hard. Mostly we do our best to stifle life - to be tame or to be wanton, to be tranquillised or raging. Extremes have the same effect; they insulate us from the intensity of life.
And extremes - whether of dullness or fury - successfully prevent feeling. I know our feelings can be so unbearable that we employ ingenious strategies—unconscious strategies—to keep those feelings away. We do a feelings-swap, where we avoid feeling sad or lonely or afraid or inadequate, and feel angry instead. It can work the other way, too—sometimes you do need to feel angry, not inadequate; sometimes you do need to feel love and acceptance, and not the tragic drama of your life.
It takes courage to feel the feeling—and not trade it on the feelings-exchange, or even transfer it altogether to another person."
