To every god damn soul out there just trying to make sense of the constant barrage; trying to reason through through the endless commands and omnipresent propaganda; trying to realize their own wants and desires, rather than those of other people; trying to separate themselves from the herd: PERSIST. It is not easy to forge your own path, or to stand strong and command your own destiny, when the strong-willed, loud voices of dissent and disapproval are trying desperately to stop you from cutting those marionette strings. Break free from the puppet master. Break free, and live your live according to your standards. Succeed in accordance with your metric of success, not that of a broken society, and broken individuals. Try to discover your passions, and pursue them, because it is then that you will discover true magic.
PERSIST. IT IS NOT EASY, AND THAT IS WHY YOU MUST.
