“I have a vicious, passionate contempt for most of the world, but constantly I must remind myself that each and every person, from the good to the bad and even the ugly play a role in advancing a bigger plan. Would we be better off if so and so was gone? Maybe. Probably. But that piece-of-shit baggage helped turn us into who we are. The question is, after all the turmoil, did we become the people we were meant to be? Life is hard, and the choices we make are our reactions to the bullshit that comes our way. Our job is to make the right choices. Not easy, and often not fun, but this is the world we’re given. We can cry and wallow about it, or pick ourselves up and soldier on. That’s a choice each of us must make, and a choice only each of us alone can make for ourselves.”
