"“Some women choose to follow men, and some women choose to follow their dreams. If you're wondering which way to go, remember that your career will never wake up and tell you that it doesn't love you anymore.”
How obscene. It's a disturbing thought when the notion that coexistence is introduced as something of pain and rejection. It's a sad day when the world declines vulnerability and advances at such great pace towards a stone cold belief that a life without love is still a life. Yes, sometimes is hurts and vulnerability can bite like no other, but sometimes it wins and we grow to understand what it means to love. Of course a career will never wake up and tell you that it doesn't love you anymore, a career will never be beside you when you wake up. It will never be your shoulder when you cry. It will never be your best friend, your sister, your family, your heart's missing piece. In the words of my girl Rebecca Ferguson, Nothing's real but love. We must embrace what it means to be weak and vulnerable in order for love to grow strong and ready to fight. And believe me, in a world so riddled with sorrow, love must be able to fight the lies society is feeding so readily.
So here's where the first piece of weaponry rears it's head. We fight fire with with fire. Here I hand over a quote that demolishes goo-goo-ga-ga's quack philosophy by a literary genius:
“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.”
So yes, C.S Lewis> Lady Gaga.
