A person tries so hard to be selfless and it bites them in the ass. You want to get ahead in life but you want to do it the right way. They say treat others the way you want to be treated but why is it that the nice people get walked on and treated like crap?? Why do we take those who love us the most for granted and obsess over the ones who treat us badly? You struggle so hard to be positive and keep a smile on your face. Why is it so hard to be positive and yet so easy to be negative? A person can have such a great day and in a split second it can be ruined. I dont want to be that person that no one wants to be around because all you do is whine and complain. I want to be the girl people want to hang out with and that people come to for advice. I want people to appreciate me and respect me for the person I am. Many people in my life didnt realize how great of a person I am until it was too late and I was already gone. Why is that?? Everyday I ask myself why are things the way the way are and I now accept that everything is the way it is for a reason and it happens for a reason and in my case it makes me a better person. I will continue to hold my head up because I refuse to drown in the rising water. I taught myself how to swim in the water of misery. Its a tough fight to keep your head above it but Im making it a point to stay above it. Surround yourself with the kind of people you want to be like and it will make it easier. Life is full of obstacles and once you think you’ve overcome there’s another one in your path. Obstacles make life more difficult yes but they also make life more interesting and stronger people. Without obstacles like would be boring….I learned not to burn any bridges in life….they were all built for a reason. I learned to put up roadblocks…you never know when you need to cross a bridge again at a different point in your life.
