100words for 2/27

Its not so hard to give up. You just stop. You stop caring, you stop fighting, you stop trying to be yourself and you be what everyone around you wants you to be instead.

You smile and you nod and you work and you sleep and you eat and you screw, but you quit smiling and you quit laughing.

It’s a small price to pay, really.

There’s still coffee in the morning and sandwiches for lunch. You still go to work and the paycheck still comes, and the bills still get paid, but little else happens.

Life still goes on.

You cannot stop being yourself. What is in motion, remains in motion. Keep the faith.

Cheers,

Sounds a little "glass half empty" to me.
