My dear,

Being an individual is one of life’s eternal hardships.

If you try it, you will be lonely often, and always (always) frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself in full and knowing you’re your own being.

See, although the wild coyote is a lonely being, a constantly hungry self-thinking being, it lives longer than the farmer’s sheep.

Falsely yours,
Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche
