Real life doesn't have happy endings. In real life, you're not likely to find someone perfect and have them whisk you off into the sunset. In real life, relationships don't end up existing 'happily ever after', right?
We’ve all spent time around people that just kind of drain the life out of you. You know the ones. The manipulators, the guilt-trippers, the ones that make you feel on edge and exhausted.
I’m so glad we live in a time when it’s so widely known that all people are equal to one another. This knowledge wasn’t always popular, and there are still people that resist this concept. Don’t worry, they’ll come around. These things just take time.
Now, I don’t want to make it seem like fighting anxiety is an easy thing to do. It’s not. I have severe anxiety, and it affects me every day. I refuse, however, to just sit and take it. I intend to fight it and live a peaceful, happy, fulfilled life. What about you? Are you with me?
It is not foolish to believe. It is not stupid to trust. Obviously, there’s risk involved. You put yourself in a position where you could be wrong. But nothing great was ever accomplished without some measure of risk.
Here's to the better days ahead, my friend. Let's make them happen.
I want to be perfectly clear that I don’t believe anyone should be forced to dress differently to make someone else happy. I just want to express a slightly different point of view, and if you think it’s not important enough to act on then so be it. You make your own decisions, but you also need to know how your choices affect the lives of others, even if you don’t realize it.
We all want our way. We want things to go exactly how we’d like them to without any sort of resistance. If we hear that someone else has a different opinion on how things should be, we tense up and sometimes we get into an argument. We get legitimately offended if someone disagrees with us, as though it’s an affront to all that is right with the world.
This is a call to unity and pride, not just within individual demographics. We can do better than that. Let’s all be proud of each other and stick together whether we agree with each other or not. Let’s fight for each other’s rights as well as our own.
It’s not as difficult as you may think to change someone’s life. All it really takes is caring about someone and doing something about it. The sad thing is that less and less people are willing to offer support without being asked first.
