Wasn't it my dad who told me, 'Never accept the status quo'? Challenge it. I despise the fact that the world tries to put us in a box that people often spend all their lives trying to fit into. What for? To kill yourself?
God never created us confined to a box, be it a prison in the form of man-made religion or success or mere intellectualism.
In the end, if nobody sees what you see, you have to go on your own way. The path is a solitary one, it is the narrow road, but it is the one that leads to true liberation. This is where my parents are forewarning me, out of love, 'Choose well.'
