‘Closing your eyes isn’t going to change anything. Nothing’s going to disappear just because you can’t see what’s going on. In fact, things will even be worse the next time you open your eyes. That’s the kind of world we live in. Keep your eyes wide open. Only a coward closes his eyes. Closing your eyes and plugging up your ears won’t make time stand still.’
Haruki Murakami – Kafka On The Shore
Shutting our eyes to the bad things in our lives doesn’t make them disappear, it doesn’t make them cease to exist. Life goes on, it gets better, there is a light at the end of the tunnel, I could list every cliché in the damn book and still not believe them myself.
