You see her sitting there and you think she’s so sad but it’s not that she’s sad, she’s simply given up on pretending to be happy, she’s tired of getting up every morning and putting on her fake smile, telling herself ‘today will be better’. She doesn’t want to be an inconvenience or a bother anymore.. she has stopped looking for the light switch in the dark room she calls her life.

Sometimes, contentment is a matter of will. You have to look at what you have right in front of you, at what it could be, and stop measuring it against what you’ve lost. I know this to be wise and true, just as I know that pretty much no one can do it.
