You don’t have to agree with me on this. However, i remember when i was young, and i was struggling with a few things in life, and i was trying hard to find solutions, and i was giving my fights -physically and mentally- on the field of battle which is Life itself, i remember the people giving me the following advise : Be Patient .
My beautiful young people, this is the worst advise that someone can give you. There is no time left. Which means there is no time for patience. Which means there is no space for patience. DO NOT have patience.
Take a pencil and a paper, and draw the map of action. Get angry, if necessary. When there is no hope left, get angry.
PS 1 : I don’t blame the people who try to be kind and supportive, and they try to help by saying one or two nice words to show compassion. I know they love you, and they want the best for you, and to have a wonderful future. This is what they have, and this is what they give. I don’t blame them at all. And be kind to them, my wonderful young people. Be kind to them. Don’t be kind to the “Patience”.
PS 2 : Do not get confused with the “stoicism”. Stoicism means : i don’t give a fuck. Which is wonderful, sometimes, to have this kind of attitude. Sometimes. Let me play a song.
