I sometimes don't get it.
Why everybody gotta be so serious?
I didn't realise how much it hurt me.
So our parents can say things that hurt a lot.
But you know,
words have power
And unless you want something to come true,
Please don't say it.
But do you, in some corner of your heart, want it to come true?
Because if people can say "I want happiness" but act contradictorily, it's because there are things within them—fears, beliefs, desires—that they themselves haven't come to terms with, but which act on their lives nevertheless.
So if you can say something like that, do you believe it? Or do you want it to come true?
I mean, it's not like I don't know every human being has bits of evil and nastiness in them.
I suppose what should matter to me is:
- When I get my own house
- When I get a dog
- Who I wanna be
