    Perspective.

    on the one hand: i could drive intoxicated, possibly killing or maiming another person and/or myself, and consequently live the rest of my life in guilt, pain, and despair.... OR on the other hand: pay $10 for a cab. gotta go with option B. every time. it's just not worth it.

    I never said I'm good. I never thought I'm best. I don't think I'm better. But I'm real, talk straight and give reflection to what I receive. Learn to deal with it or leave.
