do not pity the dead, harry, pity the living, and above all those who think feminism means hating men.
Just gonna throw it out there- “feminazis” aren’t real. Stop equating genocide to that one time a girl told you to stop being a sexist piece of shit.
If you look at the fact that you have a roof over your head, food to eat, that you are young and beautiful and live in a peaceful land, then no, you have nothing to be sad about. But the fact is, we are not only a physical body, we have souls too, and sometimes our souls get sick. If you break a leg you don’t just say ‘I have no reason to have a broken leg’ and ignore it; you seek help. It’s the same when your soul gets hurt. Don’t apologize for being sad.
When I was in the Young Artist Program at the Met, I asked Bryn Terfel why he seemed so cool and calm before going out onstage, and he said, ‘Well, I sing better if I’m not nervous.’ Makes sense, right? So one year I gave up fear for Lent. I just decided that I’m not going to be afraid anymore. It’s hard to do, but I realized that fear is something that exists only in the future. In the past, it exists as regret. But in the present, it doesn’t exist. You’re only worried about what will happen. So I try to do what I’m supposed to do, practice the things I’m supposed to practice, be as honest as I can and approach things with an intent that is in accord with nature, as my voice teacher would have said. And then I do it.
