It’s the sense of touch. In any real city, you walk, you know? You brush past people, people bump into you. In L.A., nobody touches you. We’re always behind this metal and glass. I think we miss that touch so much, that we crash into each other, just so we can feel something. – Crash (2004)

The closer that two people get to each other, the more likely they will hurt each other. If those two people stay apart, the pain of loneliness will hurt them.

The hedgehog’s dilemma.

We all live somewhere between these two extremes, attempting to find a balance. What is your tendency? Do you prefer the discomfort of confrontation or the pang of emptiness in your stomach?

The hedgehog’s dilemma

is a very good example for what a human mind is able to do. By analysing THIS thematic I found out what it means to make a decision for myself.

I also startet writing essays about this theme because I was so overwhelmed by it and it’s influence on my mind.

So my advice to all of you how don’t know how you really are:
Find out yourself about what is behind this few lines and you will be suprised about reading them again.
