You don’t get to choose if you get hurt in this world, old man, but you do have some say in who hurts you. I like my choices.

What and how much had I lost by trying to do only what was expected of me instead of what I myself had wished to do?

A year ago we stayed up till 3 am talking
And today I don’t know how to even say hey

I clenched my teeth against the stars. I closed my eyes. I surrendered to sleep. One of the reasons why we crave love, and seek it so desperately, is that love is the only cure for loneliness, and shame, and sorrow. But some feelings sink so deep into the heart that only loneliness can help you find them again. Some truths about yourself are so painful that only shame can help you live with them. And some things are just so sad that only your soul can do the crying for you.

— Shantaram (Gregory David Roberts)
