If you look at the fact that you have a roof over your head, food to eat, that you are young and beautiful and live in a peaceful land, then no, you have nothing to be sad about. But the fact is, we are not only a physical body, we have souls too, and sometimes our souls get sick. If you break a leg you don’t just say ‘I have no reason to have a broken leg’ and ignore it; you seek help. It’s the same when your soul gets hurt. Don’t apologize for being sad.
Blessing for a Happy Day
Wherever I go, let me go there with gladness.
Cast off the gloom and banish all sadness.
Brighten my path and lighten my feet,
Bring joy to my soul and to those I may meet.

I’m not going to prevent myself from evolving intellectually out of fear that someone might point out that I used to think differently. Well, of course I did, I’ve just come across evidence potent enough to transform my world view in the meantime. I’m not going to stagnate ideologically just for the sake of consistency.
i wanna date someone and live with them in a shitty apartment but be happy about it because we are happy together and we can decorate it with stupid dorky posters of shit we like and figurines and art and we can cook weird recipes we found on the internet and eat them and watch cartoons even if the food is gross because we made it and we’re perfect
but down deep, at the molecular heart of life, we’re essentially identical to trees.
bodies require food
bodies require rest
bodies require attention
bodies require patience
