The heart of your conversation earlier with Ranita:
Har-old-Is there any advice, you being 40, you can offer me being 24? Like, something you wish someone told you at my age?
Ranita- Do you! Get your education. And, don’t worry about them.
Har-old-Who is them?
Ranita-Them is so-called friends, fake people, doubters, girls. Don’t let no one distract you from working on you and your success.
Har-old-I’ll be honest. I am distracted by girls. So, you think I should just stay away from them?
Ranita-No, I didn’t say that. It’s okay to have a little girlfriend or just a friend. But getting settled down and being in a committed relationship, don’t do it. I got married at 19, had 4 kids and wish someone told me this. And now, I’m starting over. You need to focus on your education, getting your degree, and worry about what’s gone make you successful. Being distracted by a relationship is something we all go through. So, you gone have to find a way to take your focus off the other person and become distracted with your own self. You’re a handsome young man, on your own, seem like you got your head on straight. You don’t want to get caught up with these lil’ girls out here. They want your money. The one thing about women is that we will wait on you. No matter how long it takes. So if she’s the right one for you, and wants you to succeed, she will wait. All those people you named, Zuckerberg, Jobs, they didn’t let no one distract them, if they did, they would NOT be where they are now. Do you, baby!
Are you getting it now, son? DO YOU! Grrrrr!!!
P.S. I’m so happy you’re smart enough to see the messages in things. Big or small. You’re a thinker. Losing your technology for a few days did some good.
