Best Thing

from What Happens Next by Gentle Robot



Try your best to stand out from the crowd. Take your first step forward and hope it lands somewhere worthwhile and solid.

-But I'm still waiting for the right path for me and nothing's opened up.

Just give up what you love for a while.

-It's long enough and I'm still not where I planned to see myself, but it won't get me down. I'll survive for a while. I'll make it.

Take a week, take a month, give it what you will. Doze off in the daytime. You're standing still here waiting for that first step. You stumble and you fall. You come to he-l. You make up your own mind. Decide once and for all which way to head.

Sometimes it's hard as hell to tell yourself "it's just a job, it's not your entire life" and you'll make it through this, I promise. This won't matter much.

-I won't let this ruin me. Won't give up what I love for what I need. Losing you is the best thing I ever did.
