Sit tight: here is some soul searching crap for you.
Have you ever seen those romantic comedies? They are so far into the tunnel, no one would be able to find your light; no one could see the way out. I’ve discussed this multiple times and not once have I ever come to a certain conclusion because these ridiculous scenarios actually happen in life. People fall in love (hilarious), couples break up (truth), and best friends become your passionate lovers for a month and then get married. I heard a quote that until recently didn’t mean much to me: “You must learn to love the thorn or you won’t be able to accept the rose.” Here is the thing, most romantic comedies do not show how to accept the thorn; they simply tell you that the girl or guy accepted it with no questions asked. I have question – I have plenty of questions – and I am sure all of you do; married, single, widowed, “it’s complicated” status or happily “in a relationship” status. Is it comedy or is it tragedy? Who can win? What do you do when you have to choose between your brain and your heart? Who should win? I do not know where the light is, but I would like to reach that light. The light that illuminates my life and the decisions I make, letting me know I’m reaching the exit to the tunnel. Right now I wish I knew which way the exit was – in all honesty I don’t. Like most people I’m just trying to find my way.
Just keep me where the light is.
