one of the weirdest things i've ever done on christmas, is to try and convince my friend that she shouldn't go for mass, when she was doing her best to make it.
and i wasn't exactly trying reverse psychology on her.
it's strange but true. if you do something without knowing why, you lose the point of it all. what's religion without that deep inner drive to apply someone else's inspiration to your own life? to me, it's nothing.
religion isn't the only way. belief in god isn't the only way. when you choose them, also make sure you choose to understand why.
else it's all just a waste of time.
ps: she did go for christmas mass :)
