At the end of the day (in the middle of the day)

I'm stuck at work...bored. For some reason my mind is going to those darker places. You know what I'm talking about.

Well, maybe you don't. I'm a pretty dark guy.

Today's kernal of wisdom from the dark-pit in my gut is this:

"in the end all there is, is you."

Confucious the dark-pit is not. I guess the point is: don't look for someone else to make you happy. If you can't do it (make yourself happy) then forget about anyone else being able to.

Gee, thanks dark-pit.

I've been in this dark pit--but ultimately the realization that it depends on you and that you are responsible for your own happiness is a FREEing insight. Now, I'm going back to my own pit.

True, but it isn't a very romatic notion...

Think of it this way--perhaps your partner's happiness depends on your own.
