The problem, often not discovered until late in life, is that when you look for things like love, meaning, motivation, it implies they are sitting behind a tree or under a rock. The most successful people recognize, that in life they create their own love, they manufacture their own meaning, they generate their own motivation.

For me, I am driven by two main philosophies, know more today about the world than I knew yesterday. And along the way, lessen the suffering of others. You’d be surprised how far that gets you.

Neil deGrasse Tyson (via liberatingreality)
Oh, darling, you will be good to me, won’t you? Because we’re going to have a strange life.

The truth doesn’t hurt. The sudden realization of time spent as a victim of deception is what one experiences upon the unveiling of truth, the sudden shattering of mental and emotional security invested in such an illusion is where trauma arises. Demonizing honesty only conditions us into fearing the essential tool that is truth, while we should be celebrating the salvation it yields.
