#make #time for the #people who #think you're #worth the #effort. #fuck the #rest #inthatorder. #liveand learn.

My friend Frederico recently told me that he wanted only to be friends with people in his engineering network. But then his fiancée found out he got her sister pregnant and she kicked him out the house. When his engineer friends said no, guess whose door he knocked on?

When he died everyone assembled at his mother’s house after the funeral to fellowship and talk about how good a man he was. Everyone had wonderful stories to tell, and I wondered who this man was they were talking about. They couldn’t have been talking about my father; was this the same man who poisoned me and who bent me over an ironing board beating my ass immediately after my mom went to work everyday?
Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves. Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend. --Bruce Lee

Natalia admitted getting in her own way in the past, but it took a few beat downs for her to realize she needed to be the driver of her own journey and that no one could do it for her. So, even though , to use her mom’s phrase she didn’t have two nickels to rub together, she mustered the strength to walk away from a man who said no one else would want her.
