You really have to look inside yourself, find your own inner strength and say, “I’m proud of what I am, who I am and I am just going to be myself”—-Mariah Carey.
After a while you learn the subtle difference between holding a hand and chaining a soul. And you learn that love doesn’t mean learning and company doesn’t mean security. You begin to learn that kisses aren’t contracts, presents aren’t promises. You begin to accept your defeats with your head up and your eyes open. With the grace of a man, not the grief of a child and learn to build all your roads on today because tomorrow’s ground is too uncertain for plans that future has. A way of falling down in mid-flight. After a while you learn that even sunshine burns if you have more of it. So you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers. You really are strong and you really do have worth. You learn and learn with every person you meet or employ. With every friend or lover you learn, with every goodbye you do too.
