Somewhere along the line, you changed. You stopped being you.
You let people stick a finger in your face and tell you you’re no good.
And when things got hard, you started lookin’ for something to blame, like a big shadow.
Let me tell you something you already know: The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place, and I don’t care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life.
But it ain’t about how hard you hit, it’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!
Now if you know what you’re worth, then go out and get what you’re worth! But you gotta be willing to take the hits. And not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody!
Cowards do that and that ain’t you! You’re better than that!
From: “Rocky Balboa” (2006)

You ask me if it’s about you and I answer: “No.”
I’m not angry at you. I’m just a little disappointed. But don’t worry I’ll get over it.
And then you want to know if it’s about somebody else and I say: “No.”
I’m not angry at anyone really, just done with this game. Weiterlesen »

It’s not because of this number. I don’t care about it but I’ll gladly use it as an excuse. It’s not the day that makes me sad but the fact that you are not around for it. You would’ve been the older one and I would’ve teased you about it. But all I can do today is trying to make it through this day without falling apart. Weiterlesen »

Sometimes the answer to a question is going to change your life. Forever. And sometimes you just think it does but in truth it just brings you back to where you started. Again. Weiterlesen »

I like you. I really do – probably a whole lot more than I should. Even if you are mean, lash out at me or ignore me. It drives me crazy if you are not here. And then I’ll always start to make stupid vows to myself about all the things I want to say to you. But then I never do say them. Weiterlesen »

Sometimes it doesn’t need to be some big tragedy happening or some huge chaining of unfortunate events. Sometimes all it takes to finally hit bottom is one small incident. So small actually that normally you wouldn’t even think of it as more than just a tiny inconvenience. But if you hit bottom this one little event becomes a huge drama. Because you just can’t take it anymore. Weiterlesen »

So I did not ask in case you are wondering. I could say that I was afraid of an answer and well, that’s part of it -a huge part of it actually. But you can’t just ask a question like that. You can’t just blurt it out. You’ll have to find a moment when both courage and timing are right. Or at least that’s what I keep telling myself. But still I can’t bring myself to give up, not yet.

Some people pretend to be someone they are not. Others put on an invisible mask over their faces and hide behind it. And some filter everything they say. I guess there is nothing wrong with wanting to be someone better, protecting who you are or trying to be polite. But what if who you are gets lost behind all those illusions? Weiterlesen »

If you spent your life concentrating
on what everyone else thought of you
would you forget who you really were?
What if the face you showed the world
turned out to be a mask…
with nothing beneath it?
(Jodi Picoult “Nineteen Minutes”)
