Press On…

In 1939, Jean Paul Sartre wrote what is probably his most well-known pieces of short fiction, The Wall (I realize you may have not heard of it, but if you even know that Sartre was a French existentialist you get a gold star for the day).  The story is set in the Spanish Civil War and the main character, Pablo, has been arrested as a member of the opposition.  In short order he is sentenced to death.  The story mostly consists of Pablo’s chronicling the overnight hours as he and his two cell mates await their certain death.  He notes changes as the reality of impending doom sets in and the condemned men cease to be fully alive, long before their hearts stop beating.  Many chose to focus on this part of the story and what it means to be alive

If you really do want help, or know someone who does, the best thing is stop worrying about where you came from and start caring about where you are going. Don’t think that what once happened is doomed to repetition. Don’t talk about how others have let you down, or how you’ve let yourself down, and  don’t relive it, just leave it behind. No more sentences are allowed that begin with “it’s too bad…….” or “what if….” This is the ONLY way to progress.
