Message to my Seventeen Year Old Self

Your life right now, you have to be willing to crash it. Sink the ship. It’s bad, unbearable and lacks integrity.

When you’re willing to do that, and go to that dark place you’ll find that it is not the end.

But it is where the door is to the light and the resources to build the life you want. The life you’re capable of having.
