I Will Not Become One of Them

This is harder than I thought it would be.

It is not easy to differentiate myself from a culture I'm immersed in. Their values start to seem like normal values. Their worries start to seem like legitimate worries. Fear rules, and fights to the death are encouraged.

But I will not go over to the Dark Side. I am in law school by choice, not by the direction of some cruel dictator. I knew it would be a little like taking medicine. But I didn't realize how strong the tempation would be to convince myself that I like the medicine.

I have been away. For that I am sorry. I will try to come by more often.

Meditate! That's a very good antidote to the pressures of the dark side, although in reality there aren't actually two sides. :) The dark side is inseparable from the light side.
