The world of pretend is a cage, not a cocoon. We can only lie to ourselves for so long.
We are tired, we are scared, denying it doesn't change the truth.
Sooner or later we have to put aside our denial and face the world.
Head on, guns blazing.
De Nile. It's not just a river in Egypt, it's a freakin' ocean. So how do you keep from drowning in it?”
Don't let life pass you by. Because that is exactly what will happen if you don't ever face reality. Friends and even family will begin to pass you by as well. Yeah, bad things happen - and we even do bad things, but if we deny things then we make that a million times worse. We start to live in a lie and we have to keep lying to keep up with the lie and its like this horrible thing. And you aren't fooling anyone. Just, ugh.
Life has a way of getting in the way of happiness. It really does, but like I said - it depends on whether or not you let it. So just, face your fears. It might seem awfully scary, but what is scarier - living in a dream world the rest of your life, or living in reality where you are able to move on.
Just remember. You are not alone in this.
