I am almost hysterically depressed by and for humanity. Tonight, things accumulated in my mind until I felt tangibly oppressed by the weight of the vices we get ourselves into...the tangled and unnecessary webs that we almost voluntarily get caught up in. People are capable of making incredibly stupid decisions. People can fall so easily into traps that consume their lives. People constantly let themselves slip into these dark pits that they don't even notice they're in until they've fallen so far there's no way out again without a lot of pain for themselves and everyone surrounding them. It's human nature. It's awful. How can one even be excited about living a life weighted down by such a burden?
I'll think about it tomorrow. After all, tomorrow is another day.
