you can't touch peoples' apathy.

So said my dear mum this evening, over drinks.
So wise, as ever, so succinct.
Not one thing in life will hold peoples' attention if they are indifferent to it.
Yes, this is perhaps obvious.
But what is so nefarious about it, is our collective attempts to make our own pain/pleasures apply to other people, just so they will listen to us.

Everything must be Pertinent.

And yet, as I so bitterly realize, it is not.
NOT everything is pertinent.
And I feel like this is important to remember.
