Sometimes I feel like I just don't get people anymore. Everything they do is so violently and intentionally absurd, it's just stopped making sense. Sometimes, I feel like an outsider. Like this whole world is one big inside joke, and I don't get it. Is that weird?


....And other people's tongues ended up in our mouths

Not really, no. People are weird.

I had an epiphany one morning where I realized that life is one big joke, but we're all in it.  The epiphany had to do with the possibility that life is not nearly as dramatic as people wish it was.  As we become aware of death, life turns to tragedy.  This tragedy is false, but all misunderstandings stem from it...from people blowing their lives out of proportion.  

 

The funniest part about this joke is that love and the desire for love is so overpowering it's impossible to remain privvy to the joke.  We will all inadvertently become drama queens from one moment to the next.

No worries, a lot of people think and feel like you do.

Personally, I think there is a lot more goodness and beauty to people and life than badness and ugliness. And when I tell people this they tend to think I'm naive, overly positive, and overly optimistic. But, this is how I feel and think.

All in all, I think people think and feel like you do because they want to focus on the negative, in order to feel and think more deeply. Science shows we interpret the negative more strongly than the positive. So, it makes sense as to why so many people think and feel the way you do, because it's simply registering more strongly. However, for me and I know many others.. when it comes to encountering the negativity... I shut down, I go numb. I guess I don't process it as strong. I experience the positivity, goodness, and beauty more deeply. Basically, I don't think this has anything to do with people and life. I think it's just the brain, doing what the brain does.

By the way, I do know there is tragedy in this world. And I do volunteer and help out when I can. It hurts that this life is so beautiful and filled with beautiful people, but some people don't get the chance to experience it, like they deserve.

I never got them in the first place, so maybe you're one step ahead.

As Terrence Mckenna said "the cost of sanity in society is isolation"

 

Don't worry if you see things as they really are.
