I'm going to be 100% honest here... The world we live in is fucked up. Seriously, absolutely, without a doubt: fucked. up. So what can we do? Live our lives the way we want to live them, and make a world we can let our children grow up in in good conscience. Don't settle for what the world gives you. It's no one's responsibility to give you what you want but you. The world may be fucked up, but your life, your little piece of the human experience, doesn't have to be. Embrace it. Live for now, feel for the past, and think for tomorrow. A lifetime is measured in fond memories, not revolutions of an apathetic rock. Don't fear death. Fear regret. Always remember love is a renewable resource. Give it to as many people as you can. Enjoy yourself, and help others to do the same. Sadly, I can't follow my own advice sometimes, but I know these truths when they're staring me in the face, so maybe someone else could use the wisdom.
