It wasn’t until after
I poured the second cup
that I realized
I was alone.
Pamela August Russell, Tea for Two (A Tragedy)
This is an important lesson to remember when you’re having a bad day, a bad month, or a shitty year. Things will change: you won’t feel this way forever. And anyway, sometimes the hardest lessons to learn are the ones your soul needs most. I believe you can’t feel real joy unless you’ve felt heartache. You can’t have a sense of victory unless you know what it means to fail. You can’t know what it’s like to feel holy until you know what it’s like to feel really fucking evil. And you can’t be birthed again until you’ve died.

I have the feeling that adoration for a senior actor from a young actor is meaningless. No matter how amazing they are, we absolutely can’t be them, and the moment we think we want to be “someone,” we won’t be able to retain ourselves. Also, when we adore and aim to be like someone, I even think that we’ve started an act of profanation of that person (laugh). That actor is perfect because it is him, it’s pointless to become the inferior version of him, isn’t it? Why would we do it when we have the potential to surpass him if we keep being ourselves and look into ourselves thoroughly?
