The truth about being less cynical

There’s a lot you need in life. But trust me when I tell you that you don’t need someone who will promise you happiness. You need someone who will make you feel less cynical.

She will never tell you to see the good in everything each day, but she will tell you that the good rests in the depths of the darkest color, and that it’s up to you to paint it white.

She will never tell you to smile everyday, but she will tell you to reserve that smile for what hurts the most.

She will never tell you that the glass if half-full, but she will tell you that glass inevitably shatters, and what shatters always makes the weak heart stronger, and so makes it just half-empty.

She will never tell you that being on cloud nine is the best feeling, but she will tell you that falling from the sky and landing hard on the highest mountain is.

She will never tell you that the ideal exists, but she will tell you that you are there — the imperfection in all its glory.

She will never tell you that destiny exists, but she will tell you that you are there — the most powerful force of imagined reality’s captivating touch, the best and closest thing to non-existent fate.

She will never make you believe in promises about happiness, but she will always make you believe in the tragic wonder of living in spite of life itself.

No, you don’t need someone who will give you false hopes about happiness. You need someone who will tell you the truth about being less cynical.
