The potential is there. It always has been, and it always will be. But it’s up to us to make the decision to take the jump—to go somewhere totally new, to do something we’ve never done before, to swallow our pride and join the dance.
“WE ARE NOT GOING IN CIRCLES, WE ARE GOING UPWARDS. THE PATH IS A SPIRAL; WE HAVE ALREADY CLIMBED MANY STEPS” – Herman Hesse, Siddhartha
We’re so quick to compare our struggles to others’—to feel guilty for feeling sad or to feel angry that other people think their problems hold a candle to our own—that we don’t realize there is no pain/sadness/heartbreak scale.
Coincidence, fate, divine providence—whatever you believe in—you can’t deny that the universe is lovely.
In trying to decide whether we are pro hook-up culture or against it, we’re disregarding the fact that we’re actively creating this culture with the discussions we do and don’t have. And, in doing so, we’re dismissing the opportunity to REALLY talk about sex — yes, sex. Not culture. Sex.
“THERE IS NO GREATER AGONY THAN BEARING AN UNTOLD STORY INSIDE YOU” – Maya Angelou
