If love were a branded product with a recognizable logo like a face wash or cereal it would quickly become a common household item. Love would have no personality or depth and surely like all other modern conveniences would become another meaningless thing that sits in your medicine cabinet, behind the mirror you gaze into wondering what your life lacks. The most commonly found brand of love would not be the more expensive double quilted soft and none abrasive love, but the cheap dollar brand that rubs you raw and makes you wonder why you put yourself through such pain just to clean yourself of your own filth.
You speak to familiar souls that understand, but could never really understand your plight. Having deep connections in the love seen behind their eyes when laughter becomes your meeting place is the love that is homemade; Homemade with all of its imperfections. You don’t always know how it may feel but it’s the idea that keeps you clean by knowing that even if the love you make isn’t as perfect as the artificial kind it is still your hands that created something useful.
This is a warm day… I have nothing to do and I feel less than motivated about going to see a school consoler tomorrow. I am going to go watch xmen the original animated series on netflix then after read.
Everybody send me words of incouragement I feel stressed!
“Countries with a high percentage of nonbelievers are among the freest, most stable, best-educated, and healthiest nations on earth. When nations are ranked according to a human-development index, which measures such factors as life expectancy, literacy rates, and educational attainment, the five highest-ranked countries — Norway, Sweden, Australia, Canada, and the Netherlands — all have high degrees of nonbelief. Of the fifty countires at the bottom of the index, all are intensly religious. The nations with the highest homicide rates tend to be more religious; those with the greatest levels of gender equality are the least religious. These associations say nothing about whether atheism leads to positive social indicators or the other way around. But the idea that atheists are somehow less moral, honest, or trustworthy have been disproven by study after study.”—Greg Graffin (via ohhlauralove)
