It’s better to be your genuine self and have fewer of the right kinds of people in your life than it is to surround yourself with those who only accept you as long as you conform to their idea of who you should be.

Strength from struggle

Strength from struggle

Seen in a meme:

“You can have whatever you are willing to struggle for.”

False.

No one gets everything they desire in life (whether they struggle for it or not).

Having said that…

There are inherent benefits in the act of consistently & persistently putting in the effort necessary to achieve a lofty goal, regardless of whether one is ultimately able to achieve it or not.

For it is from the struggles in life — not the attainment of one’s desires — that a person acquires strength.
