I"m gonna go all "symbolic" on ya here, GD:

often, "death" is a symbol for change........and "live your life" can easily be interpreted, as "stasis"......
so, not taken literally, and related to our recent conversations, I can see options.

Sometimes a person feels like one option, and chooses the other.


Live your life!
Sometimes I'm confused by what I think is really obvious. But what I think is really obvious obviously isn't obvious.

I actually don't look at death (as and when its intended to be) as a bad thing.

Living or dying, I want to do both euphorically.

By death, I dont mean suicides.
In my world there's only legible and more legible.

Ya gotta LIVE YOUR LIFE to the FULLEST every SECOND you got a chance!!!

You wanna sit in a shithole hovel asking yourself "what if I...?" or saying "If only I'd..."??? Pardon the language, but FUCK THAT SHIT!!!

You gotta stare live in the face, maybe kick it in the nethers, grab yourself by the hair, and MOVE!!!

I know WAY too many people who saw themselves staring at themselves in a mirror... face a choice they can make and back down... shrink back, shriveling and saying "I'm soooooo afraid, I just cant do (whatever), I'll be OK"... and you know what?

THEY END UP MISERABLE!!!

So Rock and Roll, kiddies! Don't stand on the sidelines, Don't do something halfway, don't sit there shivering at your own reflection...

GO! GO! GO! GO! GO!!!!!!

Any questions? No? Good! Then what are you WAITING FOR? THE CLOCK TO STOP??!!

YES!!! Exactly.

Remember that not choosing is also a choice :? and that all too soon you must face the end of all choices.

But you gota live your own life. Living to meet the bare minimum or to please the right people is not a life, it's clock-work.

Living is alot more than being not dead.

I shouldn't have wandered into this thread today. I'm captain of the" depressed, my life is shit" ship today. Ah well, better perk up and go kick something.

I think it is easy to live your life when you love your life, or maybe it's easy to live your life when you have soemthing to fight against (or for).

Hmm, I'm not making alot of sense. I'm going to wander off and beat the crap out of something :?

I figure we all started dying the moment we are born. So, it is a finite adventure which only goes where we lead it.

Mel I too find great pleasure in destroying inanimate objects when feeling a bit down. or I think about pirates and zombies (well before BM i did I barely thought about either till the last few weeks).

i shall waste time here till its time to waste time elsewhere anyway :)
