Today, I realized every story doesn’t have to have a happy ending. I was never much for fairy tales anyway. Rather preferring the grit and gutter of real life. The monotony and slow steady pain that may never find release. A realist I guess.
Even as a child I’d already seen too much to believe in love at first sight.
I’m reading through my old journals right now. Starting from the beginning and hopefully reading the archives of my life. Partially to reminisce, but, mostly to remember. To collect the stories and use them for projects that I’m working on. While doing so, I can’t help but think of where I’ve come from and how I’ve grown. I can’t help but notice patterns of behavior and coping mechanisms developing in those early years that are now just pieces of my existence.
