None of what we think matters actually matters in the bigger picture. I know it sounds pessimistic, but think about it... out of the entire universe(at least what we know about it) our planet isn’t even a spec of dust, yet not 6000+ years ago we believed that we were the only plane of existence. We thought what we saw around us was all there was. So of course we’d fall into the trap of believing we matter. We matter to ourselves and to the people around us. At the most. But we’re divided. So divided. As if the things we don’t agree on actually matter. We can never let go of our selves and what we think is right due to the risk of finding out we know nothing. It’s haunting. So small No where to go Stuck in our stubborn heads. Taking shit too seriously. Taking your skin color too seriously, acting like it matters, our religions, our way of life. It’s all a choice, we choose our own path, and if someone doesn’t like our direction they might try to stir us the wrong direction. It’s a pain
