Death by 1000 paper cuts.
The banal, common, everyday frustrations of life or as Henry David Thoreau put it: “The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation.”
The monomyth of joseph campbell? the hero’s journey down to the pits of the despair only to rise again like the firey phoenix?
Or dealing with someone telling you something you disagree with and because of circumstance (some unquestioning authority situation) you have to accept and agree with it to move on?
Heroism doesn’t always get movies made of them or holy books written.
Well, it sounds like you’re ready to live a monomyth. Often the hardest thing is facing an empty space when you expect adventure and strife…
what kids today call “the backrooms” (where you end up when you glitch through the walls of a video game and can never, ever escape and you’re being chased by something but you don’t know what it is and have no sense of time passing – just an eternal yearning with fear and no relief)
… but i think perhaps they lay in balance of each other.
What happens inbetween the cut scenes of a movie that we never get to see?
We may never know.
