I want people to stop acting like learning your worth is this super freeing & happy moment. Those first few moments of realization is actually the hardest. Now you gotta cut people off, change habits, find a new environment. That purge when learning your worth is not fun.

CONCENTRATE EVERY MINUTE ON DOING WHAT'S IN FRONT OF YOU WITH PRECISE AND GENUINE SERIOUSNESS, TENDERLY, WILLINGLY, WITH JUSTICE. AND ON FREEING YOURSELF FROM ALL OTHER DISTRACTIONS. YES, YOU CAN, IF YOU DO EVERYTHING AS IF IT WERE THE LAST THING YOU WERE DOING IN YOUR LIFE, AND STOP BEING AIMLESS, STOP LETTING YOUR EMOTIONS OVERRIDE WHAT YOUR MIND TELLS YOU, STOP BEING HYPOCRITICAL, SELF-CENTERED, IRRITABLE. YOU SEE HOW FEW THINGS YOU HAVE TO DO TO LIVE A SATISFYING AND REVERENT LIFE? IF YOU CAN MANAGE THIS, THAT'S ALL EVEN THE GODS CAN ASK OF YOU. - Marcus AURELIUS
iN manicbones you know what's more freeing than killing yourself? running away to a small town and getting a job as a waitress. buying a cheap car and sticking a bed in the back and driving southwest. adopting a cat. learning a new instrument. moving apartments. visiting a friend in another city. chopping all your hair off. you can kill your current life without dying. you can kill this version of you and make a new one. maybe I'm just a bipolar sucker for rebirth but sometimes that thought is all that keeps me alive
Concentrate every minute like a Roman-like a man-on doing what's in front of you with precise and genuine seriousness, tenderly, willingly, with justice. And on freeing yourself from all other distractions. Yes, you can-if you do everything as if it were the last thing you were doing in your life, and stop being aimless, stop letting your emotions override what your mind tells you, stop being hypocritical, self-centered, irritable. You see how few things you have to do to live a satisfying and relevant life? If you can manage this, that's all even the gods can ask of you. Marcus Aurelius (Meditations, 2.5)
