I know that there is a ton of information that a person can find on the Internet if they looked up the phrase “See the forest through the trees” but there’s fewer people who honestly understands that phrase. And still even fewer people who are able to see their own forest through their own trees. 

I was fortunate recently to be able to take a step back outside of myself and look back at my life and all of who and what is in it. 

The results were stunning and shocking. I could not believe the kinds of people that are in my life. I couldn’t believe the kinds of people whom I was blindly calling “a friend”… much less the kinds of people that I was believing that I was close to, and I would tell them all of the time that I loved them.

Amazing what you miss when you do not stop to actually take a look at your life.

When I turned around and saw what these people have been doing to me all along, and behind my back… I was crushed and my world had crumbled down all around me until I was surrounded by nothing but darkness and fire. 

And yes, I am about to do something about it. And yes, there are going to be people upset. But I would much rather have them upset and then take time to get over it and move on, rather than have ME suffer this needless pain and misery, just so others can be comfortable, happy, and feel like they are in charge. 

Time for Dambreaker to do and live for Dambreaker. And time for Dambreaker to do whatever makes Dambreaker happy. And if  I am happy, then those are the things I should do. And if YOU are one of the beloved people in my life that I have endlessly loved and adored, and you cannot handle that? I’ll show you the door. 

P.S.- Johnny Depp: Your quote for this blog post? I HAVE heard you say this about your career. I am coming for you!!!
