Too many times recently I've found myself amidst a conversation about how we can't escape inevitably waking up one day having become our parents. That regardless of our actions we are somehow ruled by destiny. I didn't say it then but I'll say it now because I never should have held it back in the first place. Fuck destiny. You don't have to become your parents unless you let it happen. Make good choices. Become yourself. I'm fucking tired of this miserable, "I guess my parents were right after all" attitude.
Fear eats the soul.
