White Blindness and Everything Hurts

This piece on Thought Catalog by Kate Massy is a really beautiful reflection on the emotional spectrum and it’s inevitable waves of darkness and light.

‘The girl I kissed might have a variety of feelings, but she might not. She might have some directed at me, but she might not. This is okay. We live in a spectrum of color that overwhelms us with joy in equal measure to sadness. A few weeks ago, I left a bar alone because I couldn’t handle talking to anyone; being there felt like a silly waste. A few days ago, I left a bar with her. I put my arm around her and mentioned that she smelled nice, and that moment was neither silly nor wasteful.’
