Piercing Pessimism Persists

Bianca. 21. California. Nebraska. Welcome to my thoughts.

"But if you close your eyes. Does it almost feel like nothing changed at all? And if you close your eyes. Does it almost feel like you've been here before? How am I gonna be an optimist about this?"

My mother taught me to fight
there is not a flight in my bones
I sit in baths until they’re cold
everything I own has my clutch marks
my mouth is bloodied from biting my tongue,
why would this be any different?

From the assumptions of anti-theistic thought it follows that if God is to have any significance for the objects of knowledge at all he must be reduced to one individual object of knowledge among many others. Christian theism on the contrary says that God is the one supreme object of knowledge. He is the most ultimate fact and the most ultimate universal. It is from him that all facts and all universals that we ordinarily deal with derive their meaning.

The truth is, sometimes too much can happen in a relationship, and then there’s nothing anyone can do or say. It’s broken.

If you’re feeling small today I dare you to sit up straighter, look someone who scares you directly in the eye, take up room at the dinner table, make yourself bigger, when ‘sorry’ laps at the back of your tongue, tries to pick up after you, remind yourself that your existence doesn’t demand an apology, that you are allowed to make mess and take up space, do not be afraid to expand. Every single goddamn minute. Expand, expand, expand
