Activity


I feel like my imagination is too active sometimes. I often feel a little unsettled by the things I can cook up with a little time on my hands.
People seem to always say, "Hey, if you're feeling bad right now, it's okay, you're not alone." Or, "You're never alone man, never forget that."

I know it is a way of usually just trying to comfort people by giving them a sense of community to cling to. And a good way to use their own human psychology to make their dark and stormy day feel a little less dark and stormy. But personally, I've felt that this whole, "You're never alone no matter how deep your situation may seem." mentality a little unnerving.

Because when you think about it. That mind set suggests that no matter what happens to you, there will ALWAYS, no matter what, be someone out of the 8 billion people on Earth feeling the same, if not worse than you. Meaning that constantly, at least one person in the world is suffering.

When you think about it this way, the whole idea backfires. Rather than creating a sense of security and community, it makes people feel like they are being left behind to rot. Just like the millions of other people stuck in this miserable purgatory or poverty, depression, torment, or any other misfortune that may befall us human beings.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Side note: No, nothing bad has happened to me. But I DO see people use this as a way of trying to cheer up friends, and this train of thought just came into being. Maybe I can polish this up into an informative essay of how the human craves collectivism or something in the future, but for now, my journal will just stay as a weird side thought.
I don't even know why I decide to sit and lurk in the darkest depths of deviant art.

I COULD be getting better at art. But naw, I'm too lazy.

Why am I even on an art sight? I know for a fact that my literary skills exceed my artistic talents in terms of quality.
Been reading some sci-fi recently. Very intriguing.

I've come to see the androids from "Do androids dream of electric sheep?" as more or less, sociopathic humans.
I'm at a cross road.

Pro-choice. Or Pro-life.
