I have got to stop this path-of-least-resistance shit.
I do fine and get by, but that’s boring. I’m scared of being scared. I’m scared of putting in effort and getting nothing in return. I’m scared of rejection because jesus, I know how much that shit stings.
The world is gonna kick my ass either way. I might as well exert some control over how I get my ass kicked.
So: saying what I want to say, without knowing how people will react. Doing what I want to do, without being nagged by the probability of imperfect results. Leaving behind a string of failures is still a fuck-ton more interesting than leaving behind what everybody expects.
