I’ve found a few walls lately. Tall, strong, insurmountable. Things I feel I should be doing, because they are beliefs held by masses of people, and I don’t know what to do or say to avoid them. I can’t change these ideas, but I can decide not to accept them.

“Of course, I cannot break through this wall with my head if I don’t have the strength to break through it, but neither will I accept it simply because I face a stone wall and am not strong enough.”

-Fyodor Dostoevsky
