Everybody hurts

When the day is long and the night, the night is yours alone,
When you’re sure you’ve had enough of this life, well hang on
Don’t let yourself go, ’cause everybody cries and everybody hurts sometimes.

— R.E.M.

People are never who we think they are. They’re selfish. They lie. They change their mind. They will not pull through when you need them.

But guess what, you’re no better. I’m just as bad, too. So do we stop caring? Write them off? Burn bridges?

That’s one way to live. And the way of love is infinitely harder. But we do it anyway despite the disappointments, the hurts, the pain. Because people shouldn’t be disposable.

There is always much to gain when we think we have all to lose. Always.


About Seeing with Brahmin eyes
My sense of humor can be keen, sarcastic, silly or corny -- sometimes all at once. I enjoy meeting new people with no preconceived ideas about what or what is not possible. You get much more out of life by being open minded and willing. I'm an easy going, good-natured person who loves life and loves people. I'm both optimistic and realistic and pretty objective when it comes to assessing situations, events, etc. In general I am a very positive person and you'll usually find we with a smile on my face.

    Of course we all have something negative about us. Something that could always use some more work. But the thing is, you just got to look at the bright side. There’s so much more to be seen when you do. Don’t fret the little things. That’s what they are! Little things. Great post, by the way 🙂
