There are times in life when you really need help, and don't get it. Most of the time people don't get help, they just flounder, suffer alone, like lone starving wolves. This is a natural thing, in a natural world, and we do live in a natural world, even if we try to isolate ourselves from it, we cannot in the end, that's just the way it is.
So, what happens? We fuck up in some way, or not, and we are just almost dead-in-the-water, lost, suffering. Part of my job here is to give you something, it's now 59 years for me. There are things people do that help. When you do sports, for example, you learn that losing is just part of winning, in fact, losing is the norm, winning is the exception, and you cannot win if you don't lose. You simply have to fail and try and fail and try. Usually you fail but that's the only way to learn. You cannot rely on chance. Chance really does not come to save you. Chance victimizes you. So learning, trying, failing, gives you the skill to be OK, to succeed and be happy. That's the only way, so the way is to hang on, learn about how things work well, learn about what beautiful is really all about. Beauty is nature and experience, and that's what's happening to you when it's really bad. You will make it if you hang on and keep working at it, and learn from your failures, so take a deep breath, gather yourself, and maybe try something new. Don't be afraid to try new ways to accomplish what you need to.
This is from a dad. I am a dad, and I wonder how I will help people, like my own kids, if I am not around. I know I'm a failure in many ways in helping my own kids to learn how to manage this wild and crazy life, but I have to do my best, keep trying, so here this is. There is a lot that I've had that's good. Working on cars, working in the ground, gardening, digging, music, love, tons of stuff. Being outside and seeing animals and nature in the real wild is good.
