“You’ve slowly forgotten what really matters to you, what you were once passionate about, how you truly feel about issues, yourself, and others.”
The big picture. Every time you adjust the antenna for other people, your resolution is compromised.
“Oh, if I just adapt and explain and they understand, then everyone will be happy and see there was no problem, no conflict. No war.”
Stop adapting and explaining. You want to be high-definition? Throw away all your damn remote controls. Let go of them. This is your reality TV show. If someone wants to see some cartoons or watch the History Channel instead of what’s on, they can go find another provider. If you need their approval rating, that’s your problem right there.
Yeah, the image might still be blurry right now. You want a new resolution and high quality? You’re going to have to work and pay for what you want.
