Chapter 2 - The First Steps
Hold on tight mother fucker. Welcome to my world (lyrics - Immortal).
The walls are the same. I'm surrounded by fear and anxiety. But I want to entertain the world with everything I've got.
We need to start at the end of this story. So you can understand what this book is about. You see. At the time of writing this. Before I shared this story with you. I wrote it in a mental institution after a mental breakdown. I wasn't where I wanted to be, Now here you are, maybe in the same position.
That's why this story exists. That's why I exist. I want the world to be a better place because I was in it. And you can do that, too. When you put your mind to it. And make a simple choice.
Ultimately. You only get three choices. Do, don't or think about. I wanted to be successful in life and I made the decision to write a story.
To remind the world that war is a decision. Rape is a decision. Murder is a decision. Yeah, some people have severe mental illnesses. Way worse than mine. However, this does not mean that a murder was committed because the person was 'mentally ill'.
I don't like to use that term. I prefer the word natural born killer. Which is wrong by the way. I don't think murderers should get away with their crime by any means.
Which we all hate. They don't care about you or anybody. Which is why I write the music I write. To remind the world you can get rid of hate simply by making one of two decisions. Do, or don't. It's right there, but you can't see it.
What is Success?
Think of an innocent baby, who has just been brought into the world. When you think about it, we are all born into a system we never wanted to be involved in. So you learn from your parents, then school, then college, then University. Which is a great thing, however, I feel that a lot of people are in the jobs they don't want to be in. And it's all about the bank account.
Back to babies, you watch them grow into another unique person who has aspirations. The best you can do as a parent, is to guide them through life and let them make their own decision.
People are living miserable lives. Because they have been working jobs they hate, slaving for the man, to put food on the table. But I digress. Back to the first baby steps. Like 'name' said. A journey of 1000 miles begins with a single step. And this is mine.
Freeing yourself from a world of hate is much easier than mankind likes to believe. There is no need for war, and we don't need hate to guide us. Yeah, we need some people to kill the cow that's in your sausages. But the point here is, you're most likely working a dead end job or lost the race to the bottom. But we'll talk more about that in the General Politics chapter.
