binds

Goddamn it.

Why am I stuck in so many binds? I will list them and try to describe them honestly. I will warn you that this post will be quite vulgar:

1.) Work binds –

I need to work to make money, so I can’t quit
but I want to make money so that I can be happy, but I can’t be happy if I work

I want to quit my job so that I can have time to pursue my own interests
but I would feel very bad about betraying my fellow workers at this important moment in the company’s history

2.) Social binds

I really want to spend time with friends, on friends, writing emails, communicating
but I feel like I do not have enough time to make such communication complete, meaningful, real

I want to hang out more, “chill more,”
but I worry that I’m not spending my time meaningfully, interestingly, effectively

I want to tell people what they mean to me,
but I don’t want to reify/deify/exaggerate my relationships
I believe that every directed action may be a lie and thus I desire to avoid lies

3.) Romantic binds

I really want to have sex with more women, romance more women, be tied up by more women,
but this would put a strain on my relationship with Jen

4.) Drug binds

I want to smoke, goddamn it!
but it makes me a terror, inconsolable, unfriendly, ruins my health, god

I really want to do more drugs,
but it makes me worse at my job, at thinking, at reasoning, at achieving any sort of semblance of enlightenment

5.) Etc.

Goddamn it, I want to be HONEST again
because I am so very fucking DISHONEST in everything that I do
with everyone I know
in everything that I say
Even here, even now!
But then, if I were to tell the truth
then my careful web of lies would come crashing down and it would just be ME
AND I’M GOING TO DIE SOME DAY

    I’m not in any romantic binds but I agree wholeheartedly with the rest of this. I feel dishonest, daily. I feel like I’m not “living my life”, but buying into an illusion that the rest of everyone (everyone?) has bought wholesale. I’m supposed to be fostering a community of intellectuals, dammit! What is it with this daily grind bullshit?

    There needs to be a system. There needs to be a project.

    Well stop it!

    It doesn’t matter, anyway, Give Peace a France looms! Only 2.5 years til’ take-off!
