Everyone you meet always asks if you have a career, are married or own a house; as if life was some kind of grocery list. But nobody ever asks if you are happy.
—  Heath Ledger

I mean it’s kind of beautiful, right? If you think about it? The fact that just because someone dies, just because you can’t see them or talk to them anymore… it doesn’t mean they’re not still in the painting. I think maybe that’s the point of the whole thing. There’s no dying. There’s no you or me or them, it’s just us. And this sloppy, wild, colorful, magical thing that has no beginning, it has no end, it’s right here. I think it’s us.

Some people who’ve experienced immense loss develop a defense to more loss. It’s an instinct to push people away before they leave us.
