Morpheus: This is your last chance. After this there is no turning back. You take the blue pill the story ends you wake up in your bed and you believe whatever you want to believe.

You take the red pill, you stay in wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes.

[Neo reaches for the red pill]

Morpheus: Remember. All I’m offering is the truth, nothing more.

[Neo swallows the red pill]

– from the film The Matrix, 1999


Sometimes I wish I’d taken the blue pill.

  1. I enjoy all your articles even if you don’t see comments. If I’m diagnosed with ADHD, it will be a difficult decision for the doctor. I might tell everyone I have ADHD. Imagine the stress we have had curbing all of these issues! I can only begin to name a few. My sister said to me today, ‘you were bad as an adolescent. You were rebellious. You wanted to do whatever you wanted. You didn’t want to listen.” I remember the feeling of wanting them all to leave me alone! Let me do what I want! I began to hate them for wanting me to stay home when I could be out partying or hanging out with friends. The thought of staying home watching tv, playing piano, studying made me get sick! ADHD land! That’s what it was.

  2. That is beautiful. I mean, the red pill obviously makes you suffer but you can ignore it as you help others. It is so rare to see compassion at this level!

    • Thanks, Marcus V.
