I have no idea why certain weird things pop into my head when they do, but it often causes me much deep thought and conversations with myself. Recently I was thinking about how to explain how I approach most things in life. I figured out that I’m a dichotomy of hope – though not quite the way that initially sounds.
On the one hand, I am a hopeless romantic. Always falling in love with something or someone, and looking towards the bright side of things with a happily ever after ending.
On the other hand, I am a hopeless cynic. Taking a jaded, realist approach that life is hard and not fair, and not allowing the real “good” around me to just simply be good.
So, while I really want things to turn out as perfectly as a romantic ideal, I don’t actually believe it really will. You might think that two opposing hopeless-nesses would cancel each other out. Or do they make one just plain hopeless? I’ve discovered one of the greatest lines that comes closest to capturing my internal hopeless struggle. A local rocker has a new single that sticks in my head, and is good advice for everyone.
Keep on dreaming even if it breaks your heart.
