If human beings knew how to be decisive, no one would ever fall in love. We would hop eagerly from person to person, smiling and screaming and expecting everyone to hear. We would bounce off one another like loud idiots. We would hold hands with a person and grow tired when they hold ours back and confused if they don’t. The world would unlearn ever being harmonious, and our expectations would crumble society within hours.
We are built to be able to withstand not only the choices that others make and the emotional repercussions that will eventually follow us for months, though, more realistically, years, but also the gentler and more mediocre of the elements.
Try standing against a strong wind. You won’t tip over. Try walking into the ocean. You won’t drift away. Try telling someone you miss them and then try telling them that you don’t. It will hurt.
When I first walk into the room, I feel severe. You have to let the room accept you, similar to the way you slowly approach a dog. You must sit on the bed and wait for it. Don’t move. Sometimes it takes all night.
