If I could go back I wouldn't change anythijng, I don't care what other people think about my past, I did what I wanted and had fun.
Like I said, there's hardly ever a long-term consequence for anything.
said. Plenty of low-lifes to consort with.
No long term consequences, huh? I guess alimony and child support doesn't happen. Getting shot trying to rob someone doesn't happen either.
Keep "being brutal." You'll eventually find someone more "brutal" than you.
Time and place. I'm not going to go run off and shoot anyone, I'm also not going to be a preppy. I enjoy martial arts, challenge friends to fights all the time. It's fun (there is headgear and gloves involved) nobody has been hurt.
At that point it's not be brutal, it's just have fun.
Life isn't fair is what I think he was trying to say. The bookworm doesn't always get a better job and become the boss of his bullies. Sometimes he bullies still are the boss.
Personally I want to just do my own thing.
The crux of what I'm saying is that you can nearly always course-correct and be where you want to be in a couple of years, there are very
few ways to fuck up your life permanently.
A pregnancy won't do that.
Committing minor crimes won't do that.
People have come back from all these things to go on to lucrative careers, become mayors, lawyers, judges, etc.
You could be homeless and drug-addicted at 22, and be in a completely different place in your life by age 25.
The only real barriers to that are psychological, such as random people convincing you that you should give up if you don't have connections or had a crappy adolescence etc.
