7/31/18 - This is Home (Unconditionally)

This needs to be said. You, the reader, need to know something. You are respected. You have my respect, and our respect, not just when you’re on a roll, but when you’re failing, too.

This isn’t about being fluffy or corny. Hear me out. The way I look at it, I’ve yet to see someone make it out of life without slipping. Everyone I’ve ever known has lost their way. Hell, they’ve done so at least a few times.

The most normal thing you can do is have a rough patch or ten. Why, then, would any logical person shun you for such a failure? If that’s the rule, then we’re all disowned.

I’m a fan and supporter of yours in success and in failure. Mark my words, you’ll always have a home here.
