“There are some mornings when I cry and cry and mourn for myself. Some mornings, I’m so angry and bitter. But it doesn’t last too long. Then I get up and say, ‘I want to live.’
“I’ve learned that well… Life isn’t all it’s cut out to be. It has it’s ups and it’s down. But, you have to embrace those ups and downs and learn from them. You can’t just sit back and mope and make people have pity for you. You have to put those things that are hurting you aside and live. You only get one life, and that one life isn’t that long. You have to do everything that comes your way. Yeah, you might get embarrassed, but in a month…no one will remember. You have to do what you feel is right. You can’t worry about other people. Just live life how you would want to live it. Don’t follow examples, make them. Let people follow in your footsteps. Sometimes, you just have to dance around your room and look like a fool. Other times, you just have to sing as loud as you can, even if you do sound bad. You haven’t lived until you’ve danced around in your underwear. And most of all…You need to laugh. Never go a day without laughing, or at least smiling. It doesn’t matter if you have had the worst day, If you just laugh, everything will be ok. For the most part, just be you. Don’t listen to others. They are going to make fun of you. They are going to tell you that you are stupid. But that is their opinion. It only becomes true when you start to believe it."
