Aqueles que se foram
Quando, na calada da noite, nos deitamos para dormir, somos assaltados por um pensamento que começa como uma simples conjectura, mas que logo tranforma-se num martírio sem fim.
O que faremos quando voltarmos à rotina? Como aturaremos o olhar que nos fulmina quando nos encaramos no espelho? Aquela pessoa que viveu, viu e partilhou de momentos difíceis de explicar; aquela alma que já não se diz pura tampouco inocente; aquele brilho apagado que não nos mostra caminho algum... Tudo isso, todas essas coisas serão características absolutamente insignificantes perto da imensidão do vazio que estende sobre nós.
Aos que ficaram, resta resignificar a esperança e tentar fazer desse sinal de menos um travessão para um possível — mas improvável — recomeço. Viver, tentando não ver o que fizeram nesses meses de descaso e loucura.
People talk about themselves all the time. Directly or indirectly, they usually have the intention to promote their views, opinions, or increase their self-esteem. I'm wondering now if I'm too radical when I say that I do bother about this behavior...
Sometimes I can't stand being close to someone who is a narcissist. However, what really pisses me off is talking to someone who pretends not to be a narcissist! This is absurdly annoying. They frequently talk about themselves, mentioning their freaking achievements, secretly waiting for other people to admire them, but they also like to say that they are not so good as they wanted, or that they should give more value to what they do, and so on...
Oh, man. Really? Can't you just stop appraising yourself externally, and start doing this internally, which is by far the most important thing to do? Can't you just be a nice guy/girl and stop talking about yourself like you were in a freaking presentation?
On the other hand, I understand that this kind of people probably have some serious internal issues (who doesn't, huh?), and they probably want everyone to pay attention to them as much as possible. We've got to be patient with them, understand their problem, and maybe try to help (how??). But sometimes it's just too hard to do that.
New year's resolution? Nah, I don't think so...
