Talking

I spent a couple of hours talking to some friends on the phone and am now feeling better. One interesting question I was asked was which is more important to me, my causes or being happy. The guy I was talking to pointed out it seems that I spend so much time learning about the actual state of the world there's little time left for taking care of myself or others. My frequent sense of depression probably stems from feeling like I can't actually do anything to halt the impending environmental collapse.

It's interesting that I find people who are more successful at making change attractive. Perhaps I don't actually want a romantic relationship and instead am actually after fellow revolutionaries. (Or at least I'm looking for someone better at reaching out to others as I know that's important for changing society and I'm really bad at it.)

Hey Cute Lady,

I'm glad you're feeling better. ^ - ^

If you're after fellow revolutionaries, well, ya know ME.

And I am glad to know you.

True to my word, I'm going to remind you (read: "nag") to set real, attainable, step-wise goals for yourself. You can do it! I have every confidence in you.

Love,

Your fellow "overcommitted revolutionary,"

Alexander

i take my life way to seriously and always read and am concerned about the world. Sometimes I wish I was like Forrest Gump, simple and happy. In the Bible it talks about how too much wisdom brings sorrow: For with wisdom comes much sorrow; the more knowledge, the more grief. Ecclesiates 1:18.
