memo for my daughter
Posted February 15, 2011on:
I want to tell you this, but I think it’ll confuse you right now and might give you nightmares. So I’m putting it in writing.
If you could, don’t take shit from anyone without making them pay. OK? Don’t be confused with “never take shit from anyone,” because sometimes, taking shit is a better option given the circumstance; but don’t let them get away with it. I hope you will make them pay back in time, and then some.
Don’t let it consume your existence and energy, because that would be a lose-lose situation. Let it sit and steep. Just live and wait. And then your time will come.
I waited until the day after valentine to tell you this. I hope it helps.
P.S.: consider forgiveness once you have made them pay you in full. Or forgetfulness, whichever one comes first.
