‘You are a terribly real thing in a terribly false world, and that, I believe, is why you are in so much pain’. — Emilie Autumn, The Asylum for Wayward Victorian Girls
I was reminded of this quote yesterday & oh how I love it. I gave a couple of readings at the weekend to people who were actively dreading going back to work on Monday & related this quote to them.
“Play the game if you have to, just don’t get scared by the heffalumps & woozles”
The quote reminded me that often people have to play a part in the ‘real’ world that doesn’t necessarily represent their true persona. Today is Monday but it will be over before you know it. Don’t disappear down the rabbit hole, be as true to yourself as you possibly can. Play the game if you have to, just don’t get scared by the heffalumps & woozles
