You know how every now and then, you have a moment where our whole life stretches out ahead of you like a forked road, and even as you choose one gritty path you’ve got your eyes on the other the whole time, certain that you’re making a mistake?

The first step towards getting somewhere is to decide that you are not going to stay where you are.

I’m sure a lot of you have had this experience where you’re changing, you’re growing as a person, and people still tend to treat you like you were 18 months ago. And it’s really frustrating sometimes, when you’re growing up and you’re becoming more capable, and you’ve solved and gotten over some personality quirks, whatever it may be, and people still treat you like you were a year to 18 months ago. It can be very frustrating.

I can be changed by what happens to me, but I refuse to be reduced by it.
