This is a collection of ideas that may help you today. Not 100% original but worth repeating.
- You will become the people you let be around you. You will be as good or bad as them. You will struggle to push yourself harder than they push themselves. Don’t weigh them down and don’t let them weigh you down. Be neither the Ox nor the Load.
- If change is needed and you are… surrounded by chaos… be the order that is needed. restricted by order… be the change that is needed. beaten down by pain… do no harm to others. comforted by love… be at peace with the world. Resistance breeds strength… know when to resist your environment to become stronger.
- Become addicted to the truth. Above all else value the truth. Sacrifice everything on the altar of truth. If it is not true then it is nothing. Could be’s, should be’s, and feelings have their place, but they are beneath what is true. Your strongest held ideals are but paper if built on a lie or they are unshakable if built on the truth. There is no value without truth.
- Be your best yourself. Work to be better today than you were yesterday so that everyday you are becoming your best self. Do not put yourself with people who do not think the best of you. Avoid systems that are set up to make you feel bad or start you from a place of apology.
