The grapevine says, the girl was OWI.

What? No smart remarks about senior citizens driving?

Here is a bit of truth. I got it from a fellow Anon, and now pass it on to you.

The saddest part about all the time I spend on the web.

I only go there to feel something, because I myself am depraved and desensitized to emotions.

It’s like this. When you were a kid, you could have feelings from watching a bird, or playing with a beloved pet. The joy that came from the little things. Children feel everything in extremes, and their lives are so much brighter because of it.

As you age though, you are taught to keep it down, keep it in, to “man up” as it were. Each time you do, you give a little of yourself up and lose some of your brightness. By the time you hit your 30’s there is barely a glimmer left. Then something happens that turns what’s left of your world on its head. Losing a family member, splitting with your partner, it doesn’t matter what it is to everyone else, it’s what it does to you. You are so shattered emotionally that you wonder if you will ever be the same again. You won’t.

It happens to everyone eventually, I’ve been through mine.

Now I don’t feel anymore.

I’m just here, existing instead of living.

I don’t get those overwhelming feelings any more. The weight of everything in my life and the exhaustion from clawing my way out from under my own thoughts every day has forced me to abandon everything that doesn’t get me one hairsbreadth closer to some far off goal.

I’ve seen the hate, the intolerance, and the sheer ignorance of the world. People have stopped caring, because caring means you have to feel, and feeling takes effort. Most people think the opposite of love is hate, and it isn’t. The opposite of love is apathy. It’s not that I haven’t noticed what is happening around me, I just don’t care.

My advice, be bright. Buy a coffee for the guy behind you at the coffee shop. You can choose to be a force for light or darkness in the world. Be the light.
