And how, with your help, we can keep this movement alive.

BY GLITCH (NOLASTNAME)
@ VOL 26 ON JUN 18, 2018

The perspective he now has and the person he has become are exactly where he needs to be. As humans we have a tendency to walk through life complaining about the most minor things when we ought to be focusing on what really matters and not getting caught up in the bullshit. This is how he lives his life now. You should too and he'll tell you why.
