“You always listen to your mother, you understand? Do what she tells you to do, she’s your best friend. Tell her you love her everyday. You’re too young for girls right now, but there’s gonna come a time, and when it does, treat them like princesses, because thats what they are. When you say you’re gonna do something, when you say you’re gonna do something, you do it, because your word is your bond son, it’s all you have. And money, you make money if you get a chance, even if you have to sell out every once in a while, don’t be stupid like your father. Everything’s so much easier with money son. Be kind to people. If somebody chooses you, we’ve talked about this, you stand up, be a man. And you stay away from the bad things son, please, don’t get caught up in the bad things. There’s so many great things out there for you. I’ll never leave you. I’m always with you. Right here. I love you, son.”—
When you have nothing left. When you are at your desperation, do not take your life. Rebuild it instead. You know how you do that? You Burn Everything. Let go and burn everything. Forget your debts. Forget your problems. Leave your possessions. Leave your vanity. The only things you should have are friends and family. When you burn everything, you create a new open space for growth. It works just like a wildfire. At first, it sucks, and it’s going to be dangerous, and you have to control the chaos that ensues in a sense. When you are done, it will be sad, it will seem like the wrong thing to do but it’s not. Underneath all that destruction and smolder that you’ve left, there is a rebirth. This time, the forest (your life) will grow thicker, stronger, and healthier. It takes some time but it is worth it. All it takes is for you to ignite that match and let go.
