“My instinct is to hurt you because I am in the past unwanted, leaving caused pain by others, and I would like for someone else to experience the pain that I have unjustly felt, but in thinking it through, I realise that it is not beneficial for me to further the pattern of unwanted pain, seeing as we are both human beings and both merely trying to experience whatever happiness this shit called life has to offer. So instead good day and good luck in your pursuit of happiness. I’m leaving now.
'Excuse me, I couldn’t help but notice as one human to another human that that seemed like a fairly easy choice for you to make.'
It was.”
