“How does anyone connect with anyone? The woman I was with recently is great but I see that I upset her balance. I have only good intentions but I feel intrusive and strange. I want to be with her but I think my presence stresses her out. It hurts to know I have this effect.” — Henry Rollins
Preaching the gospel, Henry.
Had another debate with my roommate. We have never yet had a fight, although this was the closest we’ve come. It was still far from one, however, don’t get me wrong. We were just coming from things at completely different perspectives. I was trying to figure out why thing were happening in my life, and she thought I was making excuses for things. Maybe she’s right.
I keep finding myself surrounded with negative, cynical, grey people, and it affects me. Now, there is no fate. We determine our own destiny. I posted a Rollins quote about this concept before; he said this in the pages I read tonight, and my roommate said it, too. She says that I must be only looking for the negative sides of people, and I’ve heard that before. It’s probably all very true.
But how come, when I had a helluva lot more problems, and was a lot more cynical, I still managed to find supportive, positive-thinking, interesting people? This is what I cannot figure out.
In other news… had an e-mail discussion with this cool cat, Jin Wicked. Well, it was more of a one-sided thing, but she wrote back, and I appreciated it, and understand that her current situation doesn’t warrant a lot of time for chatter. Please visit her site at the URL above. She’s a really talented individual.
Time to go.
