A new year, of some sort

So this year is done, with all its suffering and misery. This year is finally over, the year that carried many hard and shitty years before it. Everyone is hoping for a better year to come, for themselves and for the world they live in, for the world WE live in, but is that actually doable? Is it too hopeful to wish for a better year on this planet? Is it too much to ask for really?

Actually yes, it is too much to ask for. Sadly, there is way too much bad than good in the world we live in today, and that’s actually a shame. We’ve dug our heads too deep into the ground to realize that change is too difficult, almost impossible actually. We thrive to believing that “change comes from within”, or “change yourself to change your surroundings”, which might be the case in very particular scenarios, but it does not apply everywhere. There are still billions of people suffering daily, and if an individual changes their self, it really won’t make much of a difference.

Look, I’ve been told that I’m a pessimist, that I’m too dark and negative and cold, almost dead inside. That’s not true at all, I’m neither a pessimist or an optimist. I am a realist. I look at things in a very objective way, I look at facts and reality as it is, and a lot of people don’t like reality unfortunately. It is what it is, there’s no changing it, some things are just a fact of life. There must be evil for good to exist, there must be salt for sugar to be appreciated, and there must be rain for a rainbow to come forth.

What I’m trying to say is, no matter what happens, maybe the true point of all of this is just to have inner peace with facts, more than yourself. One can’t really be happy without inner peace, acceptance, embracing of the reality surrounding them, otherwise we live in a disgusting paradox where
your own happiness revolves around your surroundings, but your surroundings cause you no happiness. In the end, we just need to embrace reality. Walk into this new year as though nothing is different, as though nothing will change, cause that’s reality.

Today, yet Tomorrow.

Today is the day that I almost rage quit from things, just walked away, for good, and didn’t look back.

Today is the day that I nearly took it all away, not from me, but from those around me.

Today is the day that I couldn’t handle it much longer, and it would have been so easier.

Today is the day that I finally accepted that that was so much better than this.

Today is the day that I just can not tolerate anyone or anything around me, and I’d rather just not be.

Today is the day that I feel so overwhelmed with everything, and no one seems to understand my pain.

Today is the day that I just feel like the walls of life are closing in on me faster than ever.

Today is the day that I, for once, have accepted that what I have is a curse, more than it is a gift.

Today is that day, that kind of day, that I realize, I have one more day to go..

The Dark Side

There are things that I don’t dare say out loud, things that could completely be misunderstood or misinterpreted. We live in a reality where we are constantly on a mission to improve ourselves in life, move up the ranks of society, get a better pay, better job, more and bigger and better everything. Do you ever stop for a moment and ask yourself, “What’s the point”? What’s the point of working so hard and stressing over everything to become more of yourself? There’s a side of life that, once seen, can’t be unseen, can’t be forgotten, can’t be unthought-of anymore. The side that reminds you that death is inevitable, the end of everything is inevitable. “It’s what you do with your life that matters” they say, yea well I call bullshit my friend. The truth of the matter is, what you do with it simply defines your surrounding conditions and situation when you actually and eventually die.

No one wants to admit that death is real. Everyone is scared of the day and way they die that they do everything in life to avoid facing reality. We go out to get better careers, better jobs, more money, bigger house and fancier car, then a better insurance policy to ensure a swift and healthy life, a better life, a more successful life, life life life life life… that’s all you hear people talking about, fucking life. What about death? Who talks about death? The only people that actually talk about death are those that have accepted that reality that, sooner or later, we die. Sooner or later, the things we love will leave, and die. In the end, nothing really matters because the one thing we fear the most, is the most real thing in the world. Death is real, just as much as life is real.

There are two sides of the equation, either you live your life to the fullest because death is inevitable, or you accept that death is inevitable and you don’t bother with life. The truth of the matter is that both are absolutely valid, and are literally a thin line apart. I personally am really close to not seeing a point anymore, I almost don’t care anymore. I do not encourage people to think and feel the way I do, because it is exhausting and tiring, and even overwhelming. It’s a weight and burden that I carry around day after day, forcing myself to get out of bed daily, forcing myself to smile and interact with society because that’s what “normality” requires of me. It is a heavy burden to endure, and an even heavier thought to process. In the end, it’s all a game called life, and there is no particular game play, just a series of choices that we each make that changes our current situation. Sadly and realistically though, all these games end with a simple, yes simple, “Game Over”, and there is no “Try Again” button.

Mia Culpa

I moved from one place to another and felt nothing. I’m trying to feel something for somewhere but I can’t seem to, maybe I’m cursed not to. I see faces, I hear names and stories, I listen and try to relate and understand, and I feel nothing. I’m trying to accept that everyone is a product of life, of their life, and the lives of people around them, yet I can’t relate. I try to accept that I’m probably not the only one that feels this way, yet I cant. I try to realize that humans can have different feelings of the same nature towards more than one person, yet my mind can’t wrap around that. I believed that deception was the only way that is possible, to have a circle of emotions pointing towards myself, maybe to fulfil a sort of belonging void that lives inside of me, and that proved to be a massive issue. It created a sort of complex inside of me, a vortex more than a void, that ate at me for the longest time, and when I let it out? When it broke out, realizing how disgusting and low I am? What did that create? A void within that void. I let out a curse that’s been leeched onto me for over a decade, and now it’s not there. It’s a relief, a blessing that it’s gone really, but it’s left more nothing inside.

I look at other people around me, they each have their own demons, and every single one lies, more to themselves than to others, over and over again till that lie became a truth. Eventually, that truth catches up to you, staring you in the eyes, burning through your soul minute after minute, second after second, every breath becoming a struggle, and for what, just so we can believe our own lies. You know, lying is a huge part of human nature, we tell our first lie when we’re less than 5 years old, are you ok they ask, and you lie, “yes”, when in fact, we’re not, and we never are ok from that point. Every single question is answered with somewhat a lie, or a twist of the truth, when asked how we are doing, or what we’re doing, or absolutely anything. What I’ve always doubted is not the truth, but any answer ever told or given. Anything I hear, by default, is either a lie or a twist of the truth, and I am a victim of my eviction, a hypocrite if I may go as far as to label myself selfishly. I don’t take pride in my hypocrisy, but I try to be as honest as possible, and when I feel like I shall lie? I take the initiative to bottle in, as I’ve done all my life.

I believe there is no right answer, no real truth, just a series of wrong questions. People tend to lie not only because it’s in our nature, but also because we’re never asked the right questions. There is a very thin line between the right and wrong question, a very thin and faint line, between hearing the truth that is, and the truth that we want to hear. I am convinced, very adamantly, that we avoid asking the right questions just as much as we avoid telling the real truth. One can never ask the right question if they are not aware of the real truth, but only ask the wrong questions to hear the answer they want to hear. Is a lie a bad thing if its purpose is to protect, or to impress, or to pretend that we are what we really are not, is a right question to ask. I know that everyone lies, big or small, white or black, everyone lies. To tell a truth from a lie is a matter of trust, and I don’t believe in trust. I believe in evidence, hard and solid evidence, but humans are weak. Innocent until proven guilty, loyal until proven cheated, honest until proven a liar, smart until proven stupid, but there is a continuation to such claims. Innocent until proven guilty, then one is guilty forever, proven a cheater, then always a cheated, always a liar, always stupid. Humans never give a second chance to change a first impression, and if they ever do give a second chance, it’s never to a better one. You will hear someone say “I never thought he would ever cheat on me”, but you will absolutely never hear someone say “I never though she would ever stop lying to me”. Hypocrisy in people is inevitable, lying is inevitable, we will all always and forever be lying hypocrites, in our own eyes, before the eyes of others, but yet another lie awaits, we will never admit the truth to ourselves.
