Removing negative posts pertaining to my emotions because I feel that like my emotions, they should be temporary and forgotten after a certain amount of time. Actions based on emotions are just not worth it
What I like:
2. My music
5. Someone who will not leave
I will remember the kisses, our lips raw with love
and how you gave me everything you had
and how I offered you what was left of me,
and I will remember your small room
the feel of you, the light in the window
your records, your books, our morning coffee
our noons, our nights
our bodies spilled together sleeping
the tiny flowing currents, immediate and forever
your leg, my leg, your arm, my arm
your smile and the warmth of you
who made me laugh again
There is no mystery to happiness. Unhappy men are all alike. Some wound they suffered long ago, some wish denied, some blow to pride, some kindling spark of love put out by scorn - or worse, indifference - cleaves to them, or they to it, and so they live each day within a shroud of yesterdays. The happy man does not look back. He doesn’t look ahead. He lives in the present.
But there’s the rub. The present can never deliver one thing: meaning. The ways of happiness and meaning are not the same. To find happiness, a man need only live in the moment; he need only live for the moment.
But if he wants meaning - the meaning of his dreams, his secrets, his life - a man must reinhabit his past, however dark, and live for the future, however uncertain. Thus, nature dangles happiness and meaning before us all, insisting only that we choose between them.
For myself, I have always chosen meaning.
