Do it anyway

IMG_0001The New Existence will render the old life a building site, wreckage, concrete, bits of glass.
The New Existence will push you towards people, places, conversations that would have your old self bewildered, baffled, mute, numb.
There is no New Existence *plus* keeping the old life intact.
There’s no both…. and.
Sorry, but it’s not my job to coddle you, to bullshit my way into lies and denial.
There *is* no New Existence until the old building is demolished. Do it anyway.
