Mikey,
You are a ship, of sorts. You must carry on. It strait-up sucks to be the guy that lights the path, AND leads the way, like an ice-breaker. 
Yet, you are that guy, Mikey. Here’s the lyrics of “Ship”. 
 
It’s a ship
It’s anchored in the bay
I believe it’s time for you to go
Here’s a tip
I don’t think it’s going to stay
It’s not coming back here
anymore
There’s a light
Shines like water to the deck
Hands and ropes will drag you
from the sea
It’s alright
We all get a little wet
Hearts to be discovered
Wonders to be seen
Listen very closely
Hear the ocean roar
Calling you to sail beyond the
curve
Family, friends and lovers
Are waving from the shore
You’re the only master that you
serve
You are done here
It’s time to go
There’s a rock
And we’re drifting into it
Keep your steady gaze upon
the stars
It’s a shock
We all bleed a little bit
Our future has been written in
the scars
Pirates, ghosts and oil slicks
Torpedoes and the sharks
Conspire to drag you to the deep
With spit and grit and metal
You keep kicking at the dark
Break through to the light that
you seek
You are done here
Time to go
It’s a ship
It’s anchored in the bay
I believe it’s time to pack and go
It’s a ship
I don’t think it’s going to stay
You’re not coming back here
anymore
Hear the bodhisattva
Calling out your name
Can’t you hear the sermon on
the mount
Jesus and Mohammed
The message is the same
Love is the only treasure that
still counts
Listen very closely
Hear the ocean roar
Calling you to sail into the sun
A beauty and a brilliance
Like you’ve never seen before
I believe you’ve only just begun
You are done here
It’s time to go
You are sailing
It’s time to go

You MUST carry on, Mikey. Guys like (name withheld) don’t choose guys like you, mindlessly. Thank you for lighting a path, and leading the way.
