I’m not an astonishing person but I have always tried, mostly successfully, to live this way.

Let it go, let it flow.
You cannot push the river.

I would disagree with that

The problem is, when people think what they are doing is good, when in fact it is evil.

They were never good people.

So for evil to triumph, is when people are made to think what they do is good, when in fact its evil

Examples:

Nazism

ISIS

Communism

Yeah I do help others and forget myself sometimes. Actually, it’s more that I’m a little aloof or detached when it comes to my own emotions sometimes. It’s something I’m working on, Ben helps a lot with that. I’m more logical, I guess...mostly...

One thing people can never claim you are not Eddie, is humble. You hold this in abundance and place many before yourself.

I think  at times it frustrates you, but dont give up on people

Take Ben for example. You met him in the most of unusal places and what did it produce?

Happiness for you both and its made him, become outside his comfort zone. As i am sure it has with you very happy.

The funniest thing, is I think you both thrive on conflict with each other.

I think that is adorable

From the stories you have said, each day, you are both learning more about each other and more so growing more together as one

That is rare. I think at first it was a game between each of you, but now its how you have come to truely know and love each other

Stay gold

Night

"The masses of men lead lives of quiet desperation"  - Thoreau


Anxiety is a big thing in this day & age.
You don't even have to think too deeply to come up with all sorts of  reasons to be anxious.
Are there any 'reasons to be cheerful'? Cool
