Reasons to Stay Alive

How to stop time: kiss.

How to travel in time: read.

How to escape time: music.

How to feel time: read.

How to release time: breathe.

“I am you and you are me. We are alone, but not alone. We are trapped by time, but also infinite. Made of flesh, but also stars.”

“Minds move. Personalities shift. To quote myself, from The Humans: “Your mind is a galaxy. But the light makes it worthwhile. Which is to say, don’t kill yourself. Even when the darkness is total. Always know that life is not still. Time is space. You are moving through that galaxy. Wait for the stars.”

“Life is waiting for you. you might be stuck here for a while, but the world isn’t going anywhere. Hang on in there if you can. Life is always worth it.”
