Life is tough. Whoa is me. My heartaches.
During the transition from denial to acceptance, embrace the “Sessun” path.
Jealousy Campaign Activity #1: The Sessun Path
Remnants of a break-up are everywhere. I’ve deactivated my facebook, moved to another city, flown planes, jumped out of planes, fired guns, played crazy at a mental hospital, driven my friends crazy, ridden motorcycles, learned how to dance with clogs, turned into a hermit, flown to Paris and landed a hot job…and yet, months later, I still can’t shake the waves of break-up malaise that surge randomly throughout the day.
Sessun path: The act of turning all your negative feelings, thoughts and memories after the end of a relationship, and repurposing it to into becomming a hot indie girl. Looking perpetually disturbed or deep in thought, only capable of half smiles, the “you just kicked my puppy” countenance is the ENTIRE MODUS OPERANDI of an indie girl. Did you just pass by a Sanrio store that reminded you of all the weird happy shit you used to do together? And now they won’t even confirm that they’ve received money you’re trying to pay back for the kind loan they gave you during tough times? In spite of all the terrible shit you did, and they exacerbated, after 5 years, did they just treat you like you were dead to them? Shit, are you about to go into a tear-filled rage blackout?
Just put your hands in your wool coat’s pockets, breathe, allow your chest to touch that silk dress and stare at the floor. Accept that it’s over. Let the thought pass. And just remember, you are looking really cute right now. Use that general malaise to your advantage!
What happens after the general malaise dissipates and you tire of looking like a soulless, hot, aloof, Escher-fan girl and can no longer hold back genuine smiles and desires of exchanging good will amongst your fellow man?
Well, you still have the hot clothes, but now you’re just a less predictable indie girl…you know, the sort to talk to people, smile, do goofy things, legitimately enjoy activities, regardless of its quaintness level.
