I wish I had your joy and acknowledgement of reality, OP. I really wish I did. But this world is all too cruel and all to much.
>On the other hand I guess I gave up being a hero since real life is just too messy and inconvenient for that
Which is why all we can do if we really want to live out our dreams is seek out some form of happy lie, an illusion where all of our dreams really do come true. That is the only hope for us, especially those who want to be united with our waifus. Hell, we wouldn't even have to call her waifu anymore, we could call her girlfriend and later, Wife! We wouldn't be stuck with a term that says she's make-believe.
>but hey, that's why we have waifus, right? to help us through the rough times.
I didn't fall in love with her out of a need for some sort of crutch. I fell in love with her because she stole my heart. And now I am feeling more rough times because I'll never be with her and the rough times only get worse and worse because I think of how she isn't and never will be there to make me feel better. It's all so empty. Everything is empty. We all need to die. We need to die. We just need to fucking be dead already.
>I've been inspired and motivated by my waifu
My waifu has been the opposite. What's the point of doing anything if I'll never be with her? I can think of how happy she would be, but does it really matter if it'll never come to fruition? If I'll never get my chance to hold her? What's the point of it all?
