The choices you make now, the people you surround yourself with, they all have the potential to affect your life, even who you are, forever.
Maybe we were all destined to just keep doing the same stupid things, over and over again, never really learning a single thing.
It's okay to accept things from people. It doesn't make you weak or helpless.
So you should remember that, when you're thinking about what other people can deal with. Maybe it's not so bad.
