You know, life is tough.
In order to keep persevering, you need to give up a lot of your time and energy to things you don’t necessarily want to do.
But in order to persevere to the best of your ability, you need to be happier and kinder to yourself.
And I won’t lie, that’s difficult, because those things are apparently meant to link together in some way.
I’ve seen a lot of folk lately feeling down and stressed. In some cases, it’s that life dealt them a very bad hand, and in others, it’s fear of failure, and in other cases, they’re frustrated with themselves. It’s so hard to climb out of any three of those situations, and there are no direct answers to those problems.
But consider this.
You guys are all essentially soldiers who’ve been put up against this draining, crazy, unpredictable beast called life. This thing might have either given you some kinda debilitating disease, taunted you to the point of a nervous breakdown, or bitten your limbs off. A lot of us are kinda lying around in the ditch because god DAMN you miss your spleen.
But… you guys always have a tendency to find each other, somehow. You sit together and talk, and maybe you wrap up each other’s wounds and build a new arm made out of wood. Maybe you learn how to do that, yourself.
Maybe you have the patience to sit beneath a tree and make sure you’ve eaten enough, and slept just enough, before you have to take this thing on, again.
And you keep fighting, but not with the possibility of killing this beast, but knowing how it works, knowing what to look out for, and maybe managing to tame it a little. But a lot of the time, it can be a total bastard and shit on a lot of stuff that you care about.
And yet, there you are, with a wooden leg, taking a pill every so often to ward off your cold, six hours of sleep behind you, lugging a weapon you sort of know how to wield, and approaching this beast again, with the full knowledge of its power.
That is pretty fucking badass.
TEN MORE MINUTES
Will there be popcorn?
If you bring some for yourself, sure.
