Advice from Christmas Past

Why are such a stupid asshole?
Would you really like to know?
Well, pay your fee, remove your clothes, and we will show you why.
You went to school where you were taught to fear and to obey, be cheerful, fit in, or someone might think you’re weird.
Life can be perfect.
People can be trusted.
Someday, I will fall in love; a nice quiet home of my very own
Free from all the pain
Happy and having fun all the time.
It never happened, did it?


"People must hurt each other, as inevitably as they breathe. Nothing can stop it. It’s not enough to accept it. Accepting it is not enough, like sighing resignedly and putting on an attitude of long-suffering. Don’t get to be too good at protecting yourself. You’ve got to be ripped to pieces for the one you love, again and again. That’s doesn’t prove anything but love, and its entitlements are a frailty that can’t be held. But you will live even in that hell. The fire that hurts you gives off light like any other fire, that illuminates beautiful things, and is beautiful itself."
