Hope is interesting to kill.


How does one kill an unquenchable hope?

It serves me so well.

It’s what makes me believe I’ll succeed.

Ignore the odds.

But it can be misplaced.

An unhealthy obsession—a waste of the short time I have to make a difference.

Replace it with a new obsession?

I know that would work.

It’s what all the breakup artists do.

But will I become what I despise?

Well, this sure is sounding a lot like the uninteresting part of the conflicted hero drama!

You know, the part you wish you could just fast forward to the villain butt-kicking.

There’s nothing worse than a conflicted hero full of misgivings.

If you’re gonna do it, stop pulling punches and moaning about your life and just get it done!
