“I believe that there is a certain amount of mysticism that all women should have, that you should never tell all your secrets, that you should never tell everybody all about you.”—Stevie Nicks (via iwishihadanocean)
Dreams don’t just magicallybecome realities; it takes a lot of determination, sweat, and hard work. Remember, tough circumstances don’t last; tough people do. Most obstacles melt away when we make up our minds to march boldly through them. If you have a strong commitment to your goals and dreams, and wake up every morning with passion to work toward them, anything is possible.
You can’t force people to show you respect, but you can refuse to be disrespected. If you always back down to keep the peace, you will forever be armed with anger and self-loathing, and fighting a war within. Say what you need to say, do what you need to do, and don’t let anyone bully you into a corner.
“I guess we all have our own war stories, but they’re meant to be shared, they have to be, because these stories, they’re what bring us together, and…they keep us alive.”—Sally, Felicity (via her0inchic)
