Just some stuff that I’ve learnt lately.
Time Passes. And sometimes that’s a bitch, and sometimes it’s a blessing. Either way, it’s truth- times passes, and it takes many things with it.
You Can Do What You Have To. When there is no other choice but to put one foot in front of the other, you just do it. You have to.
Opinion Are Like Noses. Everyone’s got one. A lot of them are ugly. And many of them are full of nothing useful.
Some People Are Just Fuckwits. And something like this- something terrible, something heartbreaking… it changes nothing. The fuckwits, they’re still fuckwits.
But Some People Are Just Awesome. Serious. For every fuckwit out there, there is at least two people who have huge hearts, open minds, and are willing to put themselves out to help others.
There Is No Timeline. There are no rules. Grief… it’s a bitch of a thing. And it takes as long as it’s likes.
Chocolate is good. Always.
Mental illness bites so hard. And so does the stigma, shame and silence that surrounds it.
“Make friends with your shadow- you can’t run from it.” Sage advice from my mate Eden.
Control is an illusion. And sometimes it’s best to let it go.
And Fate is bullshit. Whether all this actually happened for a reason or not, I don’t know… but it’s still fucked.
Don’t be too busy, all the time. You’ll regret it if you miss stuff.
Rule Number One- Move On. Tony used to say this all the time- I’d stress about things, want to dissect them and discuss them; and he’d say… “You just gotta keep moving forward, darl.”
And that’s so true. No matter what happens, no matter how far back you fall… the only direction to move in, eventually, is forward.
