Just My Thoughts Vol. 1 by @Mariannoo
You have to exude the energy that you want to exist in. When your immediate circle is influenced by what you stand for and the aura you give off, nothing can touch that.
You don't have to be pessimistic to be realistic, who says thinking positive isn't real? People who's glass is half full but are ungrateful enough to call it half empty, that's who.
Right now you're reading this; when there are blind people who have to FEEL this to feel this. You just listened to a song that you loved, hated, or were indifferent about when there are people who can't hear anything. I mean, the list goes on...but the point is, it could always be worse so why submerge yourself in something you can fix but won't or can't fix and have to wait out?
Don't let them tell you what makes YOU happy. Look at what you have and understand that every day is one that should be used to learn and better yourself, not live up to standards that aren't even important to you.
You aren't successful because you don't have the cars society tells you to drive? or you don't have the shoes they wear? No, you aren't successful because you believe you need that shit. Some people want to LOOK a certain way to people who aren't even happy with themselves.
What's important is being able to sleep with the decisions you make and always being able to face yourself in the mirror knowing you designed yourself.
