It doesn't stop burning just because you choose to ignore it today, tomorrow and next week. That yearning deep down in the pit of your stomach. The gnawing in your belly. The voice that won't shut the fuck up. The ping in your heart that stings randomly. How about the eye twitch when you hit your max of ignoring shit.
YOU KNOW THE SHIT I'm talking about?!
The icky stuff that piles up in your head. You can keep going. Keep busy. Distract yourself all day long.
It's NOT going to fizzle out. It's going to keep smoldering. Then something will trigger it and the flame will flare up...AGAIN and AGAIN...
UNTIL you choose to do something about it.
How much pain is that fire going to cause you before you decide to sit down, feel the warmth and see how big this fire is going to get?
