Bad at Good Vibes Only
In 2018, I intend to let shit bother me.
Denying that ‘bad vibes’ exist is not the answer to a happy life. Being human means we inevitably face uncomfortable shit, negative thoughts, and conflict. This stuff doesn’t have to define us, but it does need to be acknowledged. Denial of our own experience or the experiences of others does not solve anything in the long run.
Often it’s members of this shit vibe tribe that teach us life’s more valuable lessons- to deny the discomfort is to deny learning from it. But also sometimes not, sometimes life just throws a big dick in our birthday cake for no other reason than it’s life and that’s what it does sometimes. It’s ok to not like it.
Meaningful or not, I can't pluck out what's painful because it’s what makes who I am. To pretend otherwise is to not be fully alive.
“We need not to be let alone. We need to be really bothered once in a while. How long is it since you were really bothered? About something important, about something real?”
Bring it, 2018.
