Life…sucks. But then you meet that person who utters the words ‘I need you.’ and suddenly you find a reason to keep on going.
The saddest person always looks the happiest, because sometimes people do actually feel that way. Sometimes your life feels like it’s caving in on you. Sometimes people really do feel like they don’t want to exist, like they want to just curl up in a ball, and go into that place between life and death. Saying ‘I don’t want to exist’ isn’t saying ‘i want to go die’. it’s saying ‘I wish that, for the time being, I could go somewhere and not have to feel’. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that. And if you don’t know how it feels to feel this way. Then you have no place to judge anyone who does.
You can’t ever really know the meaning of your life.. and you don’t need to.. just know that your life has a meaning. Every life has a meaning.. whether it lasts one hundred years or one hundred seconds. Every life, and every death, changes the world in its own way.
Gandhi knew this. He knew his life would mean something to someone, somewhere, somehow. And he knew with as much certainty that he could never know that meaning. He understood that enjoying life should be of much greater concern then understanding it. And so do I. You can’t know.. So don’t take it for granted.. but don’t take it too seriously.. don’t postpone what you want.. don’t leave anything misunderstood.. make sure the people you care about know.. make sure they know how you really feel. Because just like that.. it could end.
