No Purpose or Place

"We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off." (Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club)
Parece que a todos nos educaron en base a una historia común: queremos algo, enfrentamos obstáculos, los vencemos, and we get the fairy tale ending. Lo vemos en los libros y películas, el final de una canción de amor. El final feliz no es extraño a el amor, o historias de negocios exitosos, o familias que logran aceptar y vencer una dificultad, étc. And we eat it right up, porque se siente bien pensar en la posibilidad, o más bien, en la supuesta seguridad, that everything's gonna be alright. But what if it isn't?

    even if it isn't, it is.
    it's our definition of "all right" that's the problem.
    says me, anyway.
