Because maybe it’s dumb to look for signs from universe. Maybe the universe has better things to do, dear God, i hope it does. Do you know how many signs I’ve gotten that I should and shouldn’t be with someone? And where has it gotten me? Maybe there aren’t any signs. Maybe a locket’s just a locket, and a chair is just a chair. Maybe we don’t have to give meaning to every little thing. Maybe we don’t need the universe to tell us what we really want. Maybe we already know that deep down.
