…because most people are shallow and boring, content running around in their little bubbles, afraid to open their mind, afraid to truly realise that you can view the world through one single lens and that life isn’t all that simple and easy as they wish to believe.
A midst all the drudgery and simplicity in this culture of conformity, a few bright sparks make it all worth while.
I don’t know if you’ve ever felt like that. That you wanted to sleep for a thousand years. Or just not exist. Or just not be aware that you do exist. Or something like that. I think wanting that is very morbid, but I want it when I get like this. That’s why I’m trying not to think. I just want it all to stop spinning.
