Leapdragon 2016 - Aron Hsiao Was Here

note for a friend  §

I know it won’t make you feel good to see this, and I’m sorry. I’m sorry. And I want you to know that I’m still your friend. But I’m also his friend, and have been since we were as tall as small forest mushrooms.

Life is hard and everyone can not be together. That is the nature of things. But he still cares about you. He cares about you like you would not believe and might not ever understand. So: I have been asked to post the follwing for you:

1) Please contact your boss and quit officially if you don’t mean to come back. Not for anyone else’s gain, just for your own good. Be professional. It’s a small thing and it will be done in five minutes and you’ll never have to think about it again… and it will help you.

2) (Sorry man, I forget this one, I’m a little drunk, so I’ll make one up based on my own advice to her.) Don’t discount the people that care about you. No matter how hard things get, the worst thing you can do is move yourself farther away from everyone who’s on your side, from big to small. There’s nothing worse than alone. You might think there is, but only until you’re alone.

Again, I hope you’ll take this in the spirit in which its intended: from someone who cares, and who is talking to you straight. I don’t make shit up or talk shit. I just tell it all, point blank. Realize and be. And peace and happiness to you. And I mean that.
