Superficial things are not always bad: sometimes all you need is a small scratch on the surface. But, most times you need something much more. Of all the superficial things a superficial life is, perhaps, the worst. Depth is something greatly misunderstood.
It is not an ominous black hole one can get lost in; instead, should you come to understand it, it can be one of your greatest assets. A person with depth is an interesting culmination of experience. That person has most likely endured heartache and loss, felt joy and simple happiness, and they will have struggled, as we all do. They will have fallen down, picked themselves up and celebrated.
A soul with depth has layers of lifetimes. And, those lifetimes are made up of the stuff of your own, so far, and experiences you cannot even fathom. You must encourage yourself to really live, to have experiences; to take the good with the bad. If you don’t, you are not really living, though on the surface you may appear to be. If you don’t dive in just a little bit deeper than the time before or you will not see anything new. Living superficially does absolutely nothing for your soul, outside, perhaps, of imposing boredom.
We all get a paper cut, now and then, but every once in a while you need to break your arm. And, sometimes, if the situation does not naturally arise, you need to do it on purpose.
