Despair is a much more dangerous feeling than fear, because fear is an intense feeling and, even if it can be momentarily paralyzing, in the end it calls for action, and, surprisingly, it can also create solutions. But despair is a feeling that calls for passivity and acceptance of reality even if it is unbearable, and it sees every spark of hope, every desire for change as a cunning enemy.

Cracked lips and coffee stained teeth.
Sometimes you wake up and don’t remember falling asleep.
Sunlight is spilling onto the floorboards and you avoid it like a disease.
Your heart is pounding over an empty stomach and you hope you remembered to lock the door.
You’re sitting in a crowded cafe;
You notice there are three other girls with hair the color of bricks
And suddenly you don’t feel special anymore.

Sometimes you just have to accept the fact that some people only enter your life as a temporary happiness.

If only it were all so simple! If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?
