I know a lot of people right now who are hurting, in pain. It is a big topic to tackle but here goes . . . The opposite of pain is no pain. Perhaps I’m just not attached to life like others are. And before I get “suicide” emails, I am happy right now, so don’t get me wrong.

I count on people and 95% of the time they count on me and it works. Why should I ponder that nagging 5%? It’s the old adage — I’m walking down a road. On one side of the road are 95 people who love me and support me. On the other side of the road are 5 people who use me and play me like a fool and wouldn’t give me air if I were suffocating in an airless bottle. I decide to focus on the 95 people, the 95%, who are behind me, with me, encouraging me, dancing with me.

To the 5%, I’ve seen your ilk throughout my life and the one rule about your ilk is that you are cowardly and weak, all talk and no action. You love what you see at first but then you realize I am a man of my word and you run away because the truth scares you, your dreams scare you, your goals keep changing as you dodge your truth, as you choose to suffer and feel pain and wallow in it behind a big ass pose. If you can’t follow through on one dream then the other dreams will evaporate.

    I hope that doesn’t mean I shouldn’t take art classes!

    It does not mean you shouldn’t take art classes! It means you should. And follow those lines. Pain is just the reverse of Nap without the “i”.
