Emily Davison is going through some "rough times", and her Diary is how she lets go of her feelings, how she sorts out the crap going on around her.
“But if everything is easy and simple, then what’s the point to life? If you’ve nothing to work for, you’ve nothing to live for. And if that’s the case, then there’s no point in living at all. We’d just be here; not really doing anything worthwhile, yet not doing nothing…”
“Our purpose here on Earth is to live, and make mistakes. There’s nothing wrong with failure; you just have to learn from it…”
“Sometimes, we get people who want us to do this, be that. Sometimes, we give in. Tell me, whatever happened to Independence…”
“Sometimes, life gets screwed up, and it feels like the end. But it’s not. Once you hit rock bottom, the only way to go is up. You just got to keep going. Never give up and be persistent…”
“Sometimes you have to let go, take a step back, watch a bit, and walk away…”
These are all things I’ve said before, yet never used.
My name is Emily Davison, and I can’t practice what I preach.
