the fall

“We’re more skeptical and less trusting, marred by our past and our growing knowledge of how the world will chew us up and spit us out without a thought. And so we just don’t “fall” anymore. We become comfortable. But I generally don’t do comfortable, in any sense of the word. So I’m on my island, alone. And that isn’t to say that I’m right and other people are wrong. I just wish we had more of that “fuck it” mentality and were less scared of the fall. I enjoy it.”

soulmates

there is someone out there for everyone

a common refrain for anyone feeling lonely

but what if we were given endless opportunities?

that there are several someones for everyone?

a soulmate has been conflated to mean

 

one person perfectly suited for us

 

I believe we’re surrounded by soulmates

thousands of people that we could be with

but the less we learn about the world around us

the smaller our scope, a tiny chance at finding

one of the people we’re meant to be with
