If you want something, go for it. Though tempering your desires with wisdom and previous knowledge is always advised, if you do not move from where you stand you achieve nothing but becoming a perch for the wandering bird. Life is far too long to stand still for that long. Life is far too short to not take a risk and make mistakes. Live your life, reach for what you want, exist. Do not be afraid to live, do not be afraid to fail. Learn from your pain, learn to do better. You can’t learn anything if you don’t try.
Go out there. Take a risk. Live. Stop wasting away, pining for adventure and envying others. Be the person you want to be, let nothing stop you…Not even yourself.
Loneliness is a bitter muse, fickle and unfeeling. Though it is better to be alone and wanting, than with someone and miserable. When alone, you wish for company. When together in such a way, you yearn for solitude. T’is better to want more, than to be craving less.
Rely on no one. The moment you begin to rely on them, you begin a slow process of destruction. Because no matter how you try, there will come a time when you can not be there for a person. And they will not be there for you. And when you need them most, and they’re not there to help… You begin to resent them. And that resent will grow into hatred, and you assure your own destruction within that cycle.
Being a lone wolf is hard, and your life will be short. But you will never have the qualms of friendship or reliance.
The harder you look at something, the more blurred it becomes.
The harder you try to hold onto something, more it squirms away.
If you wish to control something, you must first understand it. True control, can not be gained through force. If you wish to control something utterly, you must understand how it works, why it does what it does, and maneuver to control it within it’s own realm.
Force, only causes the object of your desire to rebel against you. A soft touch gains more compliance, than a hard fist.
Subtlety and softness is required to control something. Use force, if you wish to destroy it.
Never make a person your “world”.
It is impossible to guess what turns and twists life will take, and impossible to predict what another person will do, or even your self, as you face them.
Making a single person your reason to exist will only end badly. Regardless if they choose to abandon you, or life brings theirs to an early end. No matter what, it only means your “world” crumbles before your life is over.
Making a person your reason to live will only serve to shorten your own life.
When you make a decision, and all you can surmise for it’s reason is a blank face and “I don’t know.”, perhaps it was not the best decision to make.
Acting on instinct alone can sometimes create this scenario. But all too often, what is acted upon there is merely a desire, a want, that lacks foresight or reason. You merely act based solely on a whim, and the consequences can be severe.
“I don’t know” is never a desired description for feelings, or motivations. It is the harbinger of thoughtlessness and woe, for all those who are tangled within it’s web.
The heart desires, what the heart desires. It shall not pause in it’s pursuits to ask your opinion on the matter. It is an unstoppable force, that can not be held at bay by hierarchy, religion, race, creed, sex or distance. What it desires, it craves. And when you seek to keep it’s prize from it, it causes you pain.
The heart does not listen to what society decrees. It heeds no laws, no rules, no ideas.
To withhold your heart, based solely on concepts of your peers, you only hurt your self. Whether it be distance, skin color, religion, or sex. Heed your hearts call.
Listen to your heart. Don’t deny your self happiness based on foolish things.
One should not see the world “As it is”. Acceptance of such a philosophy is the calling card of the weak, and the dreamless.
One should see the world “As it should be”. Defiance is the mark of the strong, and the inspired.
It is a thin line between “Defiant” and “childish”. All great rulers, the shakers of the earth, grand monarchs and emperors the same, were once wide eyed children with a dream.
