Because he’s about to leave for good.⁣

You see, life is a mirror.⁣

It reflects back to us what we need to see most about ourselves.⁣

But only when we’re ready to see it.⁣

Otherwise, our trauma-fed ego bullshit blocks the message.⁣

As was the case for me.⁣

For most of my life.⁣

Until now.⁣

And after some self-reflection, I’ve made a decision.⁣

I’m firing Mr. Nice Guy.⁣

I’m kicking him to the curb.⁣

I’m throwing him under the bus.⁣

You remember him, right?⁣

That guy who smiles too much.⁣

And, like a dark clown, creeps people out.⁣

The one who always nods in agreement when others speak of violence.⁣

As though it were perfectly acceptable.⁣

Yet, deep inside he’s brooding - yearning to have the courage to speak up.⁣

He never offends anyone.⁣

But inside, he knows he should.⁣

Because the truth is offensive to liars.⁣

He works for decades at jobs he despises.⁣

And deep inside hates himself for it.⁣

He’s trying to fit in - in a world of misfits.⁣

He never actually stands up against evil.⁣

As such, he himself becomes an agent of chaos.⁣

Until one day, when the pain becomes unbearable.⁣

He can no longer ignore it.⁣

It is physically manifested in his body.⁣

It will consume him. ⁣

Or it will be conquered.⁣

Choices and consequences.⁣

Courage and willpower.⁣

The alchemy begins.⁣

Drawing from deep within, he cultivates courage.⁣

And then he springs into action.⁣

He finds his voice again.⁣

It’s not always perfect, but it’s authentic.⁣

He finds the middle path.⁣

He is hard on himself, without being cruel.⁣

So that he can grow and evolve.⁣

Day after day.⁣

He starts speaking up his mind, no matter who gets offended.⁣

He calls others out on their lame-ass ego bullshit.⁣

He never tacitly approves of any violence or evil.⁣

You can see deep truth in his eyes.⁣

You can feel it in his emotions.⁣

He literally is a different person.⁣

Someone who cares.⁣

He cares about and wants the best for himself.⁣

He cares about you because he knows we’re in this together.⁣

But most importantly:⁣

He cares about the truth.⁣

Thus he can no longer accept a world of lies.⁣

So, say Goodbye to Mr. Nice Guy.⁣

Cuz his ass is being sacrificed.⁣
