Maybe I don’t like people as much as the rest of the world seems to… But occasionally, people will pleasantly surprise me and I’ll fall in love with them, so go figure.

Life is so full of unpredictable beauty and strange surprises. Sometimes that beauty is too much for me to handle. Do you know that feeling? When something is just too beautiful? When someone says something or writes something or plays something that moves you to the point of tears, maybe even changes you.

Bob Dylan said that, when he was young, he had a secret sense of his destiny. I wish I had something like that, but I didn’t. At all. All I had was an aching sense of desperation and an acute cluelessness - a nasty combination. I didn’t have any idea what the hell I was doing, and was only doing it out of not knowing what else to do.

thanks to my ridiculous, sometimes tragic, and always unsteady upbringing, i was given the gift of bone-crushing insecurity. one thing you’ll notice about people with mental problems is constant self-absorbation. i think that’s because it’s such a struggle just to be who they are, so they have a hard time getting past it.
