The key to surviving a lonely heart is denial. We deny that we’re tired; we deny we’re scared; we deny how badly we want to succeed; we deny that we're happy and most importantly we deny that we’re in denial. We only see what we wanna see and believe what we want to believe. And it works. We lie to ourselves so much that after a while the lies start to seem like the truth. We deny so much that we can’t recognize the truth…right in front of our faces. Sometimes reality has a way of sneaking up and biting us in the ass. The world of pretend is a cage. Not a cocoon. We can only lie to ourselves for so long. We are tired. We are scared. Denying it doesn’t change the truth. Sooner or later we have to put aside our denial … and face the world head on gun’s blazing. Denial. It’s not just a river. It’s a freaking ocean. Too often, the thing you want most is the one thing you can't have. Desire leaves us heartbroken; it wears us out. Desire can wreck your life. At first, we ignore ourselves so we can save friends and families. But the end of the day all we really have is ourselves. And nothing in this world can make you feel more alone than that.
