Something's sort of bugging my mind lately. It started just very recently. I feel like I'm falling into my usual cycle again. My friend Carlo told me, "Why do we allow them to take us over? Why do we give them control? Take control, friend. No one owns you but you." Yesterday morning, Thea, another good friend, said, "Well, you got to have the stomach for it, if you're going to get into that game."
