You should make yourself into what you want to be. You’re only here for a short time. And even if you get reincarnated you’re not going to remember this time now but in vague echoes. You should make yourself into what you want to be even if people around you think it’s impossible or tragedy strikes you. Tragedy striking you is the very reason to do this because life is too much bullshit to let it have it’s way with you all the time. You don’t owe angry people explanations and you don’t have to check first with people to see if what you want is legitimate. Plenty of people fail playing it extra safe and they all say the same thing, “should have done…” You can be one of those people, fine. But if you live out your life and all you have going for it are stellar employee performance reviews, just….god damn man. It’s not even your name on the building.
