You sit behind the screen because memories and people are too painful to be around.
I sit because being myself was too painful to live with.
You to forget, I to get through.
We both try to self medicate by turning off our minds, but do you even realize it? Would you be any better off for knowing it? I know, and I do it anyway, because time passing without anything to fill it makes me sick. But you, would you? Could it help if you stopped cutting out the world and focusing on one little box?
Given the choice between it and friends, I would choose friends, but friends can cause pain by asking questions. Friends can remind you of you. So what would you choose?
The safe security of something with no complications, no questions, no change,
Or life, with its possibility of pain?
