You were born alone and you will die alone – nobody is going to save you. The only person that you can rely on is yourself, and to trust another is a risk; to trust another with your thoughts and emotions is an unnecessary risk. People will hurt you and disrespect your emotions if you let them, so don’t let anyone in. Letting someone in means risking letting loose an assassin in the innermost sanctum, even if they’re probably just a potter, even though they’re probably harmless. This is the sad reality for those of us who have had their boundaries disrespected, trust violated, rights and emotions ignored and dismissed, and of course those who have been abandoned by the very people that were supposed to protect and support them. Fuck everyone, you don’t need anyone.

I'm a man who is trying to improve the world. I know this is an arduous task, however, broken down logically it isn't so complicated. The world is made up of individual humans. Change a human, change a part of the world. Start with yourself. View all posts by Lao Tzu
