1. If you don't like what is going on in your life, it is up to you to change it. Not a parent, not a friend, not a deity, you.

3. Change is necessary and important. Change is scary, but if you don't change you become like the prisoner chained in a cave. The light source distorts the images and becomes your reality. Rats become 10 foot tall demons and the dimness overwhelms you.
