Reality

by WaitLonger

We were born into this world crying. We were stripped of our comfort and painfully thrown into an unknown and scary place. This world is inherently painful. We will leave it causing pain to others, contributing to the very suffering that loomed over us.

It is a mindless cycle of pain. There is nothing that anyone can do. Try and ignore the pain if you want, but that won’t mean that it will stop existing for you, or for everyone else. It won’t mean that babies will be born joyful and the dying would radiate happiness. It won’t change reality.

And yet these self-centered, solipsistic people around me laugh, and smile, and are happy, even while being mired in this world of suffering. Even while hurting each other. Why is that?

I don’t disagree with you. The author of this post could just as easily have been me.

But we’re missing something here. People want the cycle of pain. People are comfortable in the cycle of pain. Not us, maybe — people like us that have been hit too hard, or that see too much, or that care for an ideal world. But the majority want the cycle of suffering.

I don’t know. Pain will always be a part of me, but I don’t want to focus on reality. What’s the point? I feel more at ease with myself when I focus on my stupid ambitions, and my childish pride.

Does it matter to you what others are doing or not doing? It doesn’t to me. I want nothing to do with others.

The way you write is so impactful… it drives home sooo hard… in a good way… need to catch my breath here…
