I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.

My point is, there are a lot of people in the world. No one ever sees everything the same way you do; it just doesn’t happen. So when you find one person who gets a couple of things, especially if they’re important ones… you might as well hold on to them. You know?

Nobody really cares about your accomplishments. That’s why you need to set your own goals and do it for yourself. Forget what makes your parents proud or what your friends like, what is it that makes you like yourself?

My 26th bday is a few days away. God I’m getting old. I look at myself a year ago and I’ve grown tremendously since then. I went through a few rough experiences but I’ve learned from them and it’s made me a stronger and wiser person today. I have a lot of great things planned this year and hopefully all this hard work I’ve been putting in finally pays off.
Guilt is a wasted emotion. Look back on the past but don’t stare.
