Some facts. You will never stop falling in love with beautiful people. The shared cultural world of rules, regulations, ethical guidelines and the assorted, aggregated critical judgements of other people will also probably never stop trying to make you feel bad about it. You will never fully understand why you do the things you do nor why you have done things you have done. By the time you are old (and wise) enough to realise that this is your one shot at life, you may already have painted yourself into a corner and find that your dreams have drifted out of reach; conversely, if you realise early enough that this is actually your one shot at life, seize it as your own and embrace the sweet loving mystery out of it until it loves you back. If it never does ever truly love you back, at least you will have lived your own life on your own terms and with as much freedom as might be possible in this particular world.
