I haven’t been me for a very long time.
"As humans, we waste the shit out of our words. It’s sad. We use words like “awesome” and “wonderful” like they’re candy. It was awesome? Really? It inspired awe? It was wonderful? Are you serious? It was full of wonder? You use the word “amazing” to describe a goddamn sandwich at Wendy’s. What’s going to happen on your wedding day, or when your first child is born? How will you describe it? You already wasted “amazing” on a fucking sandwich."

“Hmmm, true, but our language is so limited to begin with, these words can’t be taken as just the words themselves, but must be taken into context, the moment that it happened. You can say that about a Wendy’s sandwich with a dudebro tone and laugh about it, but when you hold your child in your arms for the first time and say “amazing,” you’ll probably say it with tears of joy in your eyes, and sense of awe and beauty. Words are so much more the a collection of letters thrown together. The heart and person behind the words count just as much”. -as quoted from my friend
