Honesty. Reality. Pain. Brutality.

The honesty about life is that it truly is sad. There are only fleeting moments of happiness that occur and they are extremely rare. Life consists of worry, anxiety, anger, sadness, loss, grief, envy, and pain. These engulf us and overwhelm us, completely consuming our lives. Honesty is so disarming. Truth is so rude. Reality is harsh. And everything in between is brutal.

“I don’t know why we all hang onto something we know we’re better off letting go. It’s like we’re scared to loose something we don’t really have. Most people say they’d rather have something than nothing at all; but the truth is, having something halfway is much harder than not having it at all. 💘”

“Imperialism is a system of exploitation that occurs not only in the brutal form of those who come with guns to conquer territory. Imperialism often occurs in more subtle forms, a loan, food aid, blackmail.”
