This is the chemical formula for love:
dopamine, seratonin, oxytocin.
It can be easily manufactured in a lab, but overdosing on any of them can cause schizophrenia, extreme paranoia, and insanity.
Let that sink in.❞
There’s a difference between somebody who wants you and somebody who would do anything to keep you.
All of a sudden you realize the people around you are talking of different things now. You’re still wondering what one plus one equals to but they’ve multiplied sixty nine with thirty-three eons ago. You’re still tracing the dots of a colorless picture but they’ve already shaped sculptures with their bare hands. All of a sudden you feel like a kid in an adult’s world and no amount of time can fix the gap. No amount of books, movies or stories can fix the rapidly growing barrier separating you from them. You wanted to get there so badly, you cheated. You created a bridge you couldn’t uncross. And years later, when time and longing has long consumed the desire and curiosity you had for what had once seemed unattainable, you look back at the other side of the bridge and wished you had spent more time enjoying what you had then. You wished there had been a catcher in the rye when you fell over the proverbial cliff and said goodbye to the endless and mindless world your youth gave you. You should have drank one instead of ten. You should have worn that long sleeve shirt instead of the black corset. You should have known the meaning of those words before you spoke them.
The smallest of decisions in our life are often irrevocable. And some things must stay the same even when the world tells you to change.
