How do you teach the world that you are a lot more than they see you?
Your identity is not tied to your status at birth or how you grew up. It is not tied to your father’s known name. Go out there and make a name for yourself. The I.D card you wear in life is not worn around your neck or clipped to your clothing in a plastic card holder.
So stop blaming others or bitching about how unfair or crappy life is. It turned out that way for you because you made it to. It is your responsibility to show the world the truth about the real you and not what it assumed or speculated you to be. JUST LIVE YOUR LIFE.
You got nothing to prove to no one other than yourself because you are your only competition. Forget what others may think or say of you, after all, they have a right to their own opinions, right? Your identity isn’t placed on people’s validation of you.
You are no screw-up, no matter what your past has been. YOU ARE MOST DEFINITELY NOT A SCREW-UP. So, get off your behind and put your life back together but this time, with an identity.
A great life is never handed to you on a platter. You got to create it. You already got the mix so now, make the batter.
“Gold is not gold until it passes through fire”, so the saying goes, right? Well, that is actually how life rolls too. You face so many challenges and crap and you suddenly can’t take anymore, right? You think giving up makes it better, yea? How wrong you are.
You are not a loser. That is not your identity. Believe me.
“Never forget what you are, for surely the world will not. Make it your strength. Then it can never be your weakness. Armour yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you.” ― George R.R. Martin
No matter what anyone says to put you down, just keep being you. This is one aged-long secret that has been known to put off haters, bullies and back-biters.
The world sees you through your own eyes. Therefore, you are what you think of yourself and how you see yourself.
