The middle path is helpful. Often people think only in terms of sides, but really the right way is just being center.

To get any solid footing for most nowadays takes into the twenties. Give it some time.

Okay, so here it is in 500 words or less.

You'll find that as you grow older, your version of finding yourself will adjust. Maybe it'll even change radically. Each time, it'll seem as though you've finally figured it all out. Until you find the fit is changing again, and it's time to feel ill-at-ease again with your own truth.

What I want you to know is that this is okay, and that it's perfectly normal for anyone with a free mind to experience this. So, don't get up your own ass over it.

There's something else I want you to always remember.

The instant that you were born, and with the first thought that came to your little baby brain, you won the existential lottery and immediately became part of an elite class of ultimate winners. That's right. And there is no possible way that you can have that jackpot taken from you. You won. Just like everyone you know, and everyone they know, won. If it's human, then it won. So, what did you win?

The human mind - generated by the human brain - is the epitome of naturally emergent physical existence. Simple as that. You are immortal, indestructible, and indomitable. The only thing that can harm you is what you create of yourself as a final personality, but the good news is that you get to be in complete control of that. The moment you die is the moment that your fully developed human self is born as the eternal being you are creating with each thought you generate. Be aware of that one thing and you'll be fine.

That's all I have for you. Learn how to give a sh*t about others and about "doing the right thing". And enjoy the corporeal experience. It exists for a reason.
