My next book is forcing me to organize a powerful idea that's formed in my mind over the past 4 years.

You are responsible for your life and all the things in it. The actions you take are yours and yours alone.

You can't blame anyone for what you DO.

With that said...
At age 34, I'm now old enough to see the effects of family members born and raised in a cycle or ignorance.

There is a very real disadvantage to be being born to shit circumstances and raised by shit people.

Furthermore, disadvantages compound...
If you don't know how to cope with the inevitable challenges in life, you'll likely fail, and then cope with that failure in a way that brings even more challenges.

Socio-economic class is a compound word for a reason. It's about being poor AND around shit people.
I mentioned that last point because there's always someone who says they grew up poor, but they lived in rural America.

For many reasons, it ain't the same thing.

In short, I grow more sympathetic to effect of circumstances. Maybe I'm just lucky I made it out.
