shoulda known. How ya doin' banana?
Accepting that the world isn't the big party I was raised to think it was and learning that most people are tied up learning how to keep their heads above water during the course of it.
Nice place to visit but glad we don't have to live here eternally.
Also decided that I don't want to bring a kid into this either - "Dad, if you knew what it was like and what it was about, then WHY?!"
Unfortunately my partner isn't all that 'Aware' so it's difficult to try and explain my stance when the topic of birthing comes up....fortunately that's not often.
But I feel once people accept that life is pretty much like an Old Folks Rest Home and everyone communicates through Facebook and TFS and you realize if no one else cares that we don't actually have any stable or explainable reality it's just easier to bide my time without ever reflecting on the past, planning for the future, judging others or judging myself.
