When faced with situations where you feel manipulated, used or controlled
STAND UP for yourself!
Don't let people push you to do things you really don't want to do
or that compromise your own beliefs or feelings.
If your family and friends really love you they will come around
to understanding when something is important to you.
If they don't, they aren't really LISTENING to you are they?
IF you really believe in it, don't give up!
There comes a time in life for whatever reason that SOMEONE stands against us on a cause, idea or decision and the reason IS so that we can stand up for ourselves,
that we can KNOW deeply and understand just how much a part of us our choice was, how important, how vital and how much we will RISK to obtain it or reach it!
It is ok! It is part of the journey and it happens for EVERYONE.
We ALL have to learn sometime that we CAN fight for something we believe in
AND that doing so can be worth EVERYTHING!
