It is impossible to be everything we are supposed to be and to do everything and when we try- the failure we are doomed to is neither interesting nor enjoyable. To look hopelessness in the face, one comes to a real choice, maybe even the only choice that really matters; wallow in despair or dare the leap for a vastly different life. To take the path of breaking with everything is the only worthwhile end, even if it is hopeless.
Who else is out there?
