You wish for wings or horns or fangs. You wish for powers you can’t control and an ability that you hate. You wish for these things because you are already hated. Already outcasted. Already existing on the fringes of society and you are wishing that it was at least for something cool.

But no. It’s not. It’s not for anything cool. You’re hated because of the most uninteresting normal things in the world. Your coloration, who you love, what you wear, how your mind is wired. It’s all so normal and you can’t stand it. How can they hate you for something so normal? It makes no sense.

So you wish that you had horns instead.

"I think that no human really understands how to achieve happiness. If you set goals for yourself -- maybe you reach them, maybe you don't... Perhaps being happy on the journey, rather than at the destination, is more easily achieved."

Eckhart Tolle, Mac Demarco, George Harrison respectively

Never take anything for granted and appreciate what you have and for that matter, those that are capable of handling you. Because time changes everything, and some day you may end up losing what you took for granted.
