What advice did they both give?
I don’t know if I will ever get what I want. I’m pretty certain I will lose and fail many, many times again. I will spiral into the pit of my depression and wish I could disappear because trying endlessly and not knowing my effort will ever amount to anything is exhausting and agonising.
A harmonious blend of Western and Eastern philosophies.
When life gives you lemon, it sucks but it’s okay that it sucks. It’s okay to cry — even cry in the pouring rain alone at a random bus stop. It’s okay to have no one by your side, to be passed by like a shadow on a busy street. Let it all be and let it all out.
Keep going because if you don’t, you will live a life full of what-ifs, of envy, a life of a coward who admits defeat at the first failure.
