Welcome to My Soapbox...

August 26th 2009
Having a dream or believing in something no one else believes in, is the hardest and most taxing thing an individual can go through. When others don’t believe in it, than you tend to have obvious emotional and mental stress, but they take physical aspects too. You put so much energy into strength, determination, resilience, perseverance, that you become tired. You become slower, sluggish, even. After a while your personality starts to weaken, you become duller, less interested, and apathetical. The thing is, if you ever let yourself get to that point, you either are stubborn, or have something valuable. If that’s the case, then you have to push through, never stop, never give up, you have to stand up and surprise everyone. You have to say “this is my dream, I will stop at nothing to reach it. If you don’t want me to reach it, that’s fine, I don’t care.” You have to take every compliment and use them, let them life you up. Every insult, put under your feet to bring you higher. Rejoice in friends who stand by you, let go of the pain when they leave. If you have a dream: FIGHT, KICK, and SCREAM. Don’t let anyone take away your hope or potential. You have ONE life, ONE chance, it’s all or nothing. Most of all have faith, believe in yourself, give love to others and never hold anything against anyone.
