so you spend your whole life stuck in this labyrinth. feeling like, after every turn, that everything still looks the same. then you think about how you’ll escape it all one day. and how awesome it will be. how you will finally do the things that you simply can’t do now. and just imagining that future is what keeps you going.
but you never do it. you just use the future to escape the present.
Jesus, i’m not going to be one of those people who sits around talking about what they’re gonna do. i’m just going to do it. imagining the future is a kind of nostalgia.
