You have to remember to care for yourself. To feed yourself the right food, focus your mind on positive things, surround yourself with people who have your best interest in mind. Be cautious not to fall prey to the manipulative people of this world who nag at your soul like a blood-sucking vampire draining the life from your body. They’re the humans that manipulate you into thinking that they have your best interest in mind when really they’re self-centered lifeforms focused on doing whatever it takes to survive.
It’s the way that they twist every move you make into a heinous crime that is unforgivable at the very least, but in reality you’ve done nothing but pour yourself out to feed them. They don’t care about anyone or anything. They are the people that are well-fed, but malnourished, because the love and acceptance that they search for is attained through superficial behavior masked by mind games.
They’ll bulldoze through you like a wrecking ball bound and determined to knock down buildings made of titanium and steel. And that is exactly what I am made of. I am a firm foundation, rooted in hope and fearlessness. I have strength that runs deeper than any heart will ever know. There is no room for doubt within my being, only faith. It is doubt that killed more dreams than failure could ever imagine destroying. I have faith that I will overcome every obstacle. Faith that I was made to accomplish something unfathomable.
“I am a firm foundation, rooted in hope and fearlessness. I have strength that runs deeper than any heart will ever know.”
I am a glacier submerged in icy waters only revealing just a cap of how deeply I am anchored in my faith. I destroy ships that think they can sail right through me. I am a tall building that may be pushed by the wind, but never sways too far to the left or right.
I am an equal balance of the elements. My mind is the earth, my soul is the wind, and my heart is the fire. I am surrounded by people though who are so grounded to the dirt that they cannot walk, so gone with the wind that they cannot achieve, and so on fire that they run rampant through the people they claim to love most. These people nag at your body trying to gulp down the balance that oozes from your very bones.
They’ll do whatever it takes to survive and if you aren’t careful, they’ll drink you dry.
You’ll know who they are by the way that they speak to you, the way that they treat you, the way that they pretend to care only to find out what you’re up to. They’re quick to gossip about your personal details, make you think that you’re never good enough, and treat you like a slave – ever-working to earn their admiration.
Don’t fall for their tricks. Don’t buy their lies. Don’t let them rule over you.
Keep walking past them – and darling, hold your head high, because if you think back to all of those mornings you didn’t want to get out of bed and all of those sleepless nights that you thought you might not survive until dawn – you survived 100% of them – and that is something to be tremendously proud of. So when you’re feeling burnt out or insignificant, just remember, that you’ve made it this far. Remember, you are capable of amazing things and it is doubt that killed more dreams than failure could ever imagine destroying.
