i can't afford a diary, so this will have to do
n. the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own—populated with their own ambitions, friends, routines, worries and inherited craziness—an epic story that continues invisibly around you like an anthill sprawling deep underground, with elaborate passageways to thousands of other lives that you’ll never know existed, in which you might appear only once, as an extra sipping coffee in the background, as a blur of traffic passing on the highway, as a lighted window at dusk.

    This sounds really pretty but then you try to use it in a sentence and it's like..."I had a sonder last night", or what? That sounds pretty lame. >_o

    Up at the top corner where it says "rate this entry" Gave it a 5 stars because I agree with this.. though its a bit of a shame that it's the case.

    If you felt you were 100% sure that your family or friends were going to suffer eternal torture unless they changed would you try to convince them to change?

    Something more like this. I believe that if beliefs weren't packaged up and shipped as being "religion", there would be less conflict. Instead of something being your "religion" it would be your belief. It just seems to me that by pushing beliefs into a new term, gives people things to argue about. Humanity is generally tolerant of belief, but not religion.

    Do you mean that if people talked about their beliefs and not their religions that you'd find that people of the same religion would actually have differing beliefs? Or are you saying that if we talked in terms of beliefs we'd see there are more similarities among people who would otherwise think they were totally different because they had different religions?

    I had an attitude problem.

    However, the best thing to do is keep yourself occupied, stay away from the things that make you negative, and if you feel that you're going to be, keep your mouth shut. It's a hard battle, the one with yourself, but it's worth every bit of effort to work through it.
    This was one of the hardest things I've had to learn for myself, too, and I am happy you were able to pull through and keep going. We both know there will still be times that will bring you down but just.. keep at it Gav, and everything will be okay. You've fallen a lot this year, but you've also grown too. Thanks for sharing this blog; it was insightful.

    Sometimes you need it to prove it to yourself, then it becomes obvious for everybody else.

    I once had a bad attitude like this, and it still needs fixing.

    But you know, everyone at PC is an inspiration to me.

    "When you start being who you are, and stop leaning on other people and believing you can't live without them, you can reach a sense of happiness you've never had before." Very inspirational quote. (:

    I..had no idea life can be like that. That's too harsh. The difficulties I've faced, if any, pale severely in comparison.

    And I didn't think the person I admired could ever go through a hard phase in life like that. I mean, in my mind, you're virtually perfect. But yes, keep being strong, Gav. You're one of those people here who inspire me to be a better person.
