#17 \\ do not go gentle into that good night

There is a time to let go of your “old self”. There is a time to move on, but as he said

We will meet again, but not yet. Not yet.

I will take about that in 2 days but we’re not ready to go there yet.

It’s not time to let go. There is still more to be done here.

If you ever want to be subjectively certain you can’t have idle hands. You can’t let go at the first sign of trouble or the first sign of skepticism. You need to grow callused hands.

Before letting go, you need to grip! You need to be sure that you gave it everything you had or you’ll be left with uncertainty, wandering through life, wondering if you could’ve done more.

You need to know that you couldn’t have done more. You need to know that you looked under every stone. You need to know. You don’t need to tell anyone else but you need to know that you fought the good fight.

But like I said, that is for another day. We’re not ready to move on from this choice you’ve made.

We’re still in the midst of trying to resolve the doubt you’re facing with this choice, with this person.

You need to want to resolve it.

If you don’t want to try and resolve it with every once of strength you have then you probably never loved it nearly as much as said…

As I’ve been saying, doubt is ironic.

Your doubt reveals your certainty.

Doubt is like a civil war. 

It is a fight which occurs on the homeland, yet it is a fight for the homeland.

You don’t doubt that which you do not know and you don’t fight a civil war on foreign soil.

You fight on the homeland.

You fight in your very backyard, in your hometown, in the place you have come to know the most; in the place that defines you.

Houses will be destroyed and land will be burnt but it will all be done for the Good; for the thing you love.

It will all be for the sake of saving the identity of the country: You.

In the hope of reconciling your doubt you need to fight on the ground that you know. You can’t resolve it from afar and you you can’t resolve it indirectly.

Moreover, You need to believe.

You need to fight with the belief that you can make this work. You need to trust that it will work out. You can’t fight with the presupposition that at the end of the day you’re going to move on anyway.

You can’t fight with a defeated mindset.

You need to have faith like a child.

You need to put blinders on and believe that in the midst of all that is changing and all that is uncertain you still have the ability to make this work.

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rage at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
