Failure or Familiarity?
What's the real poison, failure or familiarity? Do we ache and squirm because we didn't get what we want, or because we're too attached to the familiarity of that which cuts us? The familiar has a face, our face, and so we advance towards it as if it were our home, because the unfamiliar has no face, it is unknown to us in as much of a way as our own potential is. We may fail and dwell because as bad as that is, it's familiar, and it's easier than scratching away at concrete walls with our bare fingers to venture into the unfamiliar. But no one ever said the best things for us were gonna be easy.
