I am not trying to change the world or bash those who need to rant about their mother-in-law over a glass wine.
We subconsciously want things that are unattainable because the pursuit of them will never end. In a way, wanting something you can’t have is a safe bet that will keep you moving while providing meaning to life. We all need something to do, right?
We've been our own best friends since the day we developed consciousness. We know all of our own secrets, the good and the bad. We are aware of our deepest thoughts. We know what we've been through and how those events shaped us. We may have a lot of control over how we portray ourselves externally, but good luck hiding from yourself.
