I watched you cry today, and I saw myself reflected in your eyes. What will you do when you discover your whole life is built around your obsession? Around our obsession?
We like to believe we are unique, but what if we’re not? What if we’re just animals beneath it all? Running on an outdated instinct to survive in a world we created but were never made for?
Because I feel what you do, what thousands more do. We are all struggling with the same demons, even if they are dressed differently.
If I were brave enough, someone else would see themselves reflected in my tears. Maybe if we were all brave enough, we would all reflect in each other’s.
Imagine the power in that.
