I Got This Far Without You

who-are-you

Don’t you just love those people who were nowhere to be found when you were down and out but suddenly appear out of the woodworks with all their fanciful ideas, opinions and advice when you start to make some breakthrough? Better still, you will come across those people who are ready and eager to tell you that your dreams are unattainable and your goals unrealistic – not fully grasping the fact that you making it this far is a miracle by itself. Then it starts to become laughable when they take offence to the fact that you respectfully but firmly decline any so called ‘help’ or ‘support’ that they are claiming to offer. As far as I am concerned, if you weren’t there during my struggle, you have no business sharing in my success. If you have never had the courage to do the impossible, you have no business advising me about doing what has never been done before. Lastly, if you don’t believe in what I hope to achieve, use that energy to park your derriere on the sidelines instead of trying to convince me that I will fail. If you’ve decided that you will succeed in your endeavours then all that remains is hanging in there long enough to survive the roadblocks and delays that will inevitably mark your journey – that includes people and circumstances alike.

Never Go Against Yourself

dont-go-against-yourself

Do not ignore the fundamentals of right and wrong for love nor money. At the core of us all are things that are non-negotiable and that we can’t bring ourselves to give up or relinquish because it’s part of what makes us human, good and whole. To ignore all of that, for the sake of things and people, will lead to a dead end because it inevitably bites us back in the butt and makes us feel even worse for knowing better in the first place.

Who You Should Fear

who-you-should-fear

Give me a person who will tell me their intentions, good or bad, anytime of the day, any day of the week. Whether or not you like it, at least what you see is what you get. However, miss me with that shy, silent type. The one who is surrounded with this air of mystery and intrigue. The one who says very little but acts secretively. They say silent rivers run deep – sometimes too deep for comfort.
