Quick point: Teddy Roosevelt, who could handle being shot mid speech and go on to deliver the rest, could not stop his daughter Alice from smoking on the roof of the White House. Basically Alice is too badass for the OG badass.
I can't like this enough. So many times we stay in our little boxes because we're afraid of suffering. But the thing is that, when we stay in those boxes, we're not only protecting ourselves right out of suffering but also we're protecting ourselves right out of joy. It's a boring life.
