When the world is on fire, hold on; it’s agony, and it will change you, but a reboot is coming. One of the most painful but important things I developed in the nightmare of childhood is this: when I am decimated and can’t recover, when I am bloody and on my knees, when the world is on fire, I begin to reboot, and I come out new. I am invincible. I cannot be destroyed. It feels like the skin coming off your back, and I barely survive, but I grow stronger than life itself.
