“Many of us have this view of ourselves being “captains of our ships”, and just like the old adage, “the captain goes down with his ship”; we sit on our adamant moral high horses and would rather go down with our ships than let go of something to give it, and ourselves, a chance at something better. But I’m a mermaid. We don’t go down with ships. We don’t try to conquer the ocean; we swim and flow with the waves. We sink the ships that need to be sunk and we save the people that need to be saved.”― C. JoyBell C.
