It's not all that hard, not really.
What's that? Life.
Bullshit! What's hard about it?
The usual. Money. Job. Relationships. Bullies. Bastards. Bitches.
Other people make your life hard?
Well, yeah. Of course.
Do you really think I know?
Well, I don't. I mean, I don't think I know. If I knew, I'd change it, wouldn't I?
Why the hell wouldn't I?
What's the payoff to not changing?
The payoff? There's no payoff! Unless you count grief, discomfort, disappointment, loneliness.
Maybe you like feeling that way.
Why would I like feeling that way?
You tell me.
This is a useless conversation. It's just a circle.
Yes. A circle. You got it.
I got it?
It's a circle. You're running around in circles. You must enjoy it. Or find it comforting.
Regressing to six-year-old responses won't help you.
As you wish.
As I--damnit. So what you're saying is that I like to feel bad so I invite these people who make me feel bad into my life?
You said it. It's you who said your life has been a circle of discomfort.
Okay. So how do I get off this carousel?
Just step off.
It's that simple? It couldn't be.
It is. Just step off.
