My parents started from nothing and obtained a good life. We started out in the upstairs half of a Drunkard russian construction workers home and eventually we moved into a wel to do neighborhood. Both my parents were making 6 figures and I wasn't supposed to worry about anything. I was supposed to have everything handed to me, done for me. Life was supposed to be easy.
But then my family got torn apart and I lost it along with all the promises that came with it. I had to do everything on my own and that reality never really hit me until later on in life. So years later I was working somewhere and I meet one of the smartest people who I have ever meet. My boss and so I was telling him abut my story and how I felt cheated and he told me something that stuck with me forever.
"You know what, Telekinetic Potato" he said, "People buy houses they can't afford, they buy cars they don't deserve and they get into debt and trouble because of it. The fact is in this world you have to work hard to get anything worth having and what people don't understand is The world doesn't owe you anything"
The world doesn't owe you anything. That was something that really changed how I viewed life for the better. It tought me that there are no guarantees, no absolutes. You may very well deserve something, but that doesn't mean you're gonna get it. Something probably should turn out a certain way, but that doesn't mean it will and that's a hard reality that we all need to come to terms with.0
