“Think again
Don’t give in
This isn’t what you want “
– “Think Again”
Teddy Thompson

The people who I admire most are the ones who know who they are and what they stand for. They are the people who know what they believe in, what they want out of life, and what they deserve. They are the people who do not compromise themselves out of weakness or to fit a particular situation.

Most of us know what we want from life – from our jobs, our friends, and our relationships. Yet it’s so easy to find yourself involved in something that is in direct conflict with what you know, deep down inside, you believe in.

We all know (in theory) what we stand for. It’s so easy to tell someone what you believe it, what’s important to you. Yet it’s equally as easy, if not easier, to sacrifice that.
It seems like life is okay when it’s fun and things are “going well”. But one hard look at reality paints a different picture. It’s fun because it’s easy…and it doesn’t match the person you truly are. Sometimes it’s just easier to go along with it, than to think about who you really are, what you stand for, and what it all means.

I wish I wasn’t that person, sometimes.

“This is your life, are you who you want to be
This is your life, are you who you want to be
This is your life, is it everything you dreamed that it would be
When the world was younger and you had everything to lose”
– “This is Your Life”
