Life is a dream for the wise, a game for the fool, a comedy for the rich, and a tragedy for the poor. -Sholom Aleichem
Some people in your life are going to mess you up, but you can’t let that stop you. Life’s going to be hard and unfair, but you just have to beat it at its own game. It’s going to do everything in its power to slow you down from achieving your goal, but don’t let that stop you. Don’t fall for life’s tricks. There are also going to be people who are going to doubt your abilities– let them. It’ll be worth the effort when you prove them wrong and see their faces. People these days consider some things “cool” and “popular”. Don’t fall for it, it’s so not worth it later. You’ll feel “high” when you do it then, but when the effect wears off, and you keep chasing after the feeling, is it really worth it?
Not everything in life is going to turn out alright– it’s not a stupid fairy-tale story. Don’t listen to people when they say that it’s going to be fine and everything’s going to work out in the end. That’s stupid, moronic even. If you live your whole life believing that it could work out, 90% of the time it won’t. It’s horrible to give someone false hope and then take it all away.
Wouldn’t you rather be told the truth than to live your whole life under a life?
