“The sense of unhappiness is so much easier to convey than that of happiness. In misery we seem aware of our own existence, even though it may be in the form of a monstrous egotism: this pain of mine is individual, this nerve that winces belongs to me and to no other. But happiness annihilates us: we lose our identity.”—Graham Greene, The End of the Affair (via stxxz)
“Writing is a form of therapy; sometimes I wonder how all those who do not write, compose, or paint can manage to escape the madness, melancholia, the panic and fear which is inherent in a human situation.”—Graham Greene (via story-dj)
I was only accquainted with this word last year when my friend approached me and told me that during our freshman year he had a friend crush on me. I was flattered. It’s almost better than having a romantic crush on someone because you like the person because you think they are a spectacular person and admire them. You don’t have to worry about romantic stuff getting in the way.
Recently, I told two of my friend crushes about my said crush and just like me, they were flattered. Sometimes you have to just let someone know that they are awesome.
So, if anyone is reading this that has a current friend crush…go tell them, it will probably make their day.
