Not sure why, but this is really speaking to me this morning. Feel so drained and numb. Just want someone to lie to me and tell me that I'm making it too complicated and it's all really just terribly simple, that I just need to stop overthinking it and it'll all fall into place.
I guess it's a wish for the beautiful ignorance of reality.
