Who are YOUR jailers?

You know how you get all serious and intense and take about 1000 words to describe something that's really, you know, REAL for you and then someone else says the same thing but in a lighthearded way and in about 987 fewer words?

I got to see Jamal Rahman briefly on Friday at a workshop, and he told the group this story:

I asked my father, what is life all about and he told me,
"Whosever's approval you seek,
you are their prisoner."
And I thought about that and I thought I understood it
but then he said,
"Choose your jailers with care."
