Sometimes, despite the absurdity of life, despite the risk, despite whether you’ve made the same mistake before (but maybe it made you who you are), we just have to say fuck it, and jump in.
Take a chance.
Even if you know something you do will end up with you missing or lamenting one thing, if the possible gain of what you do is potentially greater, fuck it. Just do it and see what happens. It may end up a disaster, which anyway, will make you perhaps see what actually if truly important to you, or it may end up fucking amazing.
