A little something to help you with that kid today:
Eventually, in a life going the wrong way, we run out of bridges to burn. At that point, in order to survive, in order to make a better turn, a better decision, instead of burning one more bridge, we must light ourselves on fire. We must kindle a spark, no matter how tiny. We have to protect it, feed it, dote on it. And make it real.
The trick is to not let the fire consume us.
Because the world needs us.
