If you don’t stand for something, you will fall for anything

If you don’t stand for something you will fall for anything those were the words of Malcom X. Always been this shy girl, even in school sat at the back of the class and minded my business and tried to remain invisible and survive high school.

The truth is if you don’t fight for your dreams, no one else will fight for you. You must stand up and be counted because you will be left out.

It’s the chronicles of introverts, we enjoy our own time and company because we are less exposed that means no one can hurt us.

The truth of the matter is life is messy and full of bullies even after high school. No matter how much we try to remain invisible, something or someone will say or do something to hurt our feelings.

My coping mechanism is when someone is mean to me, I always tell myself that it’s not my fault. There is something wrong with that person in their life and refuse to be anyone’s punching bag.

So right now, stand up and refuse to be someone’s punching bag, stand up and be counted. Your life, dreams, ambitions and aspirations and desires matter too. Do you have a dream? Hell go for it, get out of your comfort zone and fight for it.

If you don’t stand for something, you will fall for anything.

It’s okay to be scared, but don’t let fear stop you from achieving anything in your life. Always remember you are your only competition no one else. Keep you head up and keep walking because you are meant to be something in this world.

Find you coping mechanism and swing back at anyone who tries to get in your way to your dream.

 All dreams matter and all lives matter.

Hope you have a wonderful day.
