“Surviving Christmas and New Year’s as a single person should have you well prepared for one more slap in the face, albeit, this one is more like a closed fist swung slightly harder than the previous two.”
“We don’t want to think of ourselves that way, don’t want to admit that we have the capacity to be so fickle and heartless. But we do. It’s not our fault. It’s how we’re wired. “
Once you lived a good story, you get a taste for a kind of meaning in life, and you can’t go back to being normal; you can’t go back to meaningless scenes stitched together by the forgettable thread of wasted time.
Donald Miller, A Million Miles in a Thousand Years (via simply-quotes)
