Vincent Van Gogh used to eat yellow paint because he thought it would get the feeling of happiness inside him. Many people thought he was mad and stupid for doing so because the paint was toxic, never mind that it was obvious that eating paint couldn’t possibly have any direct correlation to one’s happiness, but I never saw it that way. If you were so unhappy that you believed even the maddest of ideas could possibly work, like painting the walls of your internal organs yellow, then you would do it. It’s really no different to falling in love or to taking drugs. They provide a greater risk of getting your heart broken or of overdosing, but people still do them every day because there is always that chance that it will make things better. Everyone has their yellow paint.
