“This is why you should never, ever get your hopes up. This is why you should see the glass as half empty. So when the whole thing spills, you aren’t as devastated.”
Emily Giffin, Something Borrowed (via perfect)
you still unhappy?
i’m gonna tell you a personal anecdote.
last night i didn’t sleep at all because a job i interviewed for never called me back. so today after my 9:30am class i went to the library and sat in a little cubicle and literally cried on and off for the next 5 hours. it was a bit of an existential crisis to put it mildly.
i sat there and resented myself for not being a better artist, for not being a better son, i even started to beat myself up for not being better looking. every fucking insecurity flowed out of me in that cramped fucking cubicle. and i got up to leave and i decided to leave my insecurities there. in that dumb cubicle in the middle of the library on the campus of my college.
if i’ve learned anything from the past few months its that its okay to not know what the fuck you’re doing. its okay to cry about things and its okay to be completely uninterested in anyone else’s opinion of you. the things that you have no control over should never have control over you.
so to answer your question: yes i am unhappy but not because of the things i can’t control— not anymore.
