Путь в тысячу ри начинается с одного шага
-You know, when you're drowning, you don't actually inhale until before you blackout. It's called voluntary apnea. It's no matter how much you are freaking out, the instinct to not let any water in so strong, you won't open your mouth until you feel like your head's exploding. Then when you finally do let it in, that's when it stops hurting. It,s not scary anymore. It's... It's actually kinda peaceful... It's like it's panic attack. You know, like I can't even breath.
-Like you're drowning?
-Yeah.
-So, if you're drowning and you're trying to keep your mouth closed until that very last moment, what if you choose to not open your mouth? To not let the water in?
-You do it anyway, it's a reflex.
-But if you hold off until that reflex kicks in, you have more time, right?
-Not much time.
-Yet more time to fight your way to surface.
-I guess.
-More time to be rescued.
-More time to be in agonizing pain. And did you forget about the part where you feel like your head's exploding?
-If it's about survival, isn't a little agony worth it?
-And what if it's just get worse? What if it's agony now and and it's just hell later on?
-Than think about something Winston Churchill once said: If you are going through hell, keep going.
