Stand For Something

Stand for something, or you’ll fall for anything.  We’ve all heard it a million times, and it doesn’t get any less true the more you hear it. 

The truth is…having conviction and morals is what’s going to keep you grounded and keep you from making big mistakes.  Or as many as you would have without them, anyway. 

Stick to your guns.  Don’t change for anyone.  Not unless, of course, you need to change something in yourself to live a more peaceful life. 

I’m sure you’ve all heard it…

We’re born alone, and we will die alone. 

Sure, it’s cliché, but it’s true.  Just remember that when you find it unbearable and impossible to be alone.  Being lonely isn’t just some sorry feeling or pitiful adjective to describe a person, it’s a necessity.  Learn to cope with it.  One day you’ll miss that feeling and wish you had more time to yourself.   

If you don’t love the person that you are, no one else will.  Take advantage of the time you have left and become the person you want to be.  Truth is…you’re the only thing holding yourself back.  Nothing is going to fall into your lap.  If you want something, you have to go after it.  Sure, I believe in fate and believe that whatever is meant to happen will happen…but only to a certain extent. 

You can’t sit inside all day and hold on to that idea.  Nothing is going to knock on your door and ask you if you’d like a dream to come true.  You’re the author of your own life.  You’re in control of what’s going to happen next.  Take charge and stop holding on to the hopes that one day things will work themselves out, because they won’t.  I’m sorry, it just doesn’t work that way. 

So get off you’re a$$ and hustle.  I’m so sick of hearing people complain about their lives while they’re doing absolutely nothing to change it…

    This is so true in so many ways, I couldn’t agree more. 🙂

    Change is hard. Bitching is easy.
