Occasionally when I’m bored on just in the mood I’ll search through #personal on here. A lot of what comes up is mundane or esoteric bullshit but sometimes you catch little glimpses into people’s lives and thoughts.
There’s something comforting about seeing a bunch of strangers expose themselves. It could be argued that a lot of these people are just doing it for attention but I think there’s something else there. With all the cynicism that poisons online communication it’s refreshing to see people being honest and vulnerable.
Here are people who I will never meet and most likely will never even read anything else they’ve done. I’m sure that if I did get to know them their whole persona would become tedious to me in no time however for a brief moment I feel a connection. Trying to understand their pain having absolutely no context.
And of course all I can do is think of myself.
Perhaps I seek out connections like this since they’re an easy way to empathise with someone without bothering with all that comes from real friendship and interaction. I just get little glimpses of a life other than my own, see what it brings out in myself and then move on never giving any of it a second thought.
I find the whole exercise comforting yet troubling at the same time. Obviously I’m never troubled by what anyone else writes only for what it says about me that I enjoy standing at a distance and watching to world pass by. Maybe the reason I don’t connect with people IRL is because I just can’t be bothered with anyone else’s life for more than 5 seconds.
Could just be boredom though.
everyone who reblogs this, and i mean everyone, will get a song in their ask, that i think matches their blog and personality.

My ex-music partner did a Hardstyle remix of the Doctor Who theme because there’s so much overlap between the two fanbases. Check it.

The most uplifting song I’ve heard today.

Ever get the urge to just chew off your pinky finger because you cut your nails this morning and somehow it makes perfect sense that you’d want to consume a part of your own body just because life is full of frustration but is also completely pointless?
