And Now, A Letter To ME From My Entirely Fictional Alter Ego
I think you have to live life in 4 wheel drive. Maybe things get rough and you can try to just take an easier path, but that’s just surviving, not living. You have to go through things to call yourself a survivor. It’s not easy and it’s not pretty, but you have to do it. Maybe you’re scared. Maybe you think you’ll never make it. Maybe you think you’re a failure. Maybe you’re wrong.
You’ve got a bully at work? Deal with it. No one is going to fix it for you. Stand up and demand to be treated right. You want to be walked on? Fine. Lie down and take it. Don’t just bitch about it and expect it to get better. Take some fucking action. That bully will just keep on until someone makes him stop. He thinks being a dick means he’s hard. Bullshit. He’s just a limp little man-child who never learned that the world doesn’t revolve around him.
Hate your life? Well, fucking fix it then. Take a stand and make some changes. If doing what you’ve been doing gets you the same pathetic results, DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT. Everyone has shit to deal with. You’re not the only one. No one has a perfect life. Get over it. You’re miserable. You don’t have to stay miserable.
Show the world you’re done being everyone’s bitch. Tell them you’re not going to take it anymore. You’re strong, you’re smart and you’re beautiful. Own it.
