The Hard Thing

I just keep trying to remind myself that it takes a lot of strength and character to keep doing what you know is right even when it's not what's popular...even when it means people will dislike you and feel threatened by you and exclude you and speak ill of you the moment your back is turned. I understand why they harbor such animosity...but it doesn't make it any easier on my heart.

There's not much I can do except hope that being a salmon pays off somewhere in the end...

...and just keep swimming.

This is why I only do what people tell me to. Yes, sir! No, sir! Youbetcha! I'm on it!

You'll have to give me lessons. I do this thing that people tell me is extremely annoying...it's called thinking (and it's generally not very appreciated). Ah well...

I'll fill you in sometime - it requires voodoo dolls and a few particular prescriptions, but I'm sure you can do it, too.
