Speaking of passion, you won’t lose that. You will live your life cheering for the underdog. You will want to right what is wrong. You have a voice and let me tell you, you are not afraid to use it! People will shake their heads at you. They will look at you in bewilderment at times. Often times you will question if it is worth it—to say what you mean and mean what you say. There will be times you will wish that you could be a wall flower—an ornament in the background.
There will be tears over some of the mean and hurtful things that people say to you. You will wonder why you were made this way. Question your gift. And I fully encourage you to think about it. Sit with it. Question yourself over this seemingly endless passion that you have. Because when you do, you will discover it is a gift—a talent. A beautiful quality that makes you who you are.
Many people will come and go in your life. Friends will disappoint you. They will lift you up. They will hold you when you are down and celebrate when you succeed. Some will only be in your life for a short time. Some will pop in and out of your life. Some will write their sentence in your story and disappear, never to be seen or heard from again. All of this is okay. You will often find yourself wondering about some of them and how they are doing or what they are doing. You will wonder if they were successful in finding their way in this big ole world. Some of them will turn out to be not who you thought they were, good and bad. Some will use you. They will try to demoralize you, ruin you. You won’t let them.
That’s not who you are.
