Why submit? Whether it be to the authority of someone who is of a
higher ranking than we are, or rather believes that they are, or submitting to the
monsters lurking inside ourselves. Why submit?
It’s easier, sure. When there is constantly someone else telling us what to do,
we don’t have to think too much. It’s easier not to put up a fight.
If we don’t fight, we don’t have to spend time coming up with an argument,
or proof as to why they’re wrong.
I’m not talking about breaking the law, or disobeying your boss. That will only
lead to trouble, and I am not advocating that at all. I’m talking about the
outsiders who try to control your life. The people you have no real reason
for keeping in your life because, they only harvest negativity, but the people you
can’t seem to rid yourself of.
The reality is, we don’t want to fight. We are lazy. We want the easiest way out.
No one wants to deal with unpleasantness. Sad? Lonely?
Brokenhearted? Angry? Who wants to deal with that?
In a world with thousands of distractions at the tips of our fingers,
why would we want to deal with our problems,
when we could just pretend as if they don’t exist?
Real clarity has become so overrated. Nowadays we can find it at the bottom
of the bottle, or in the bed of a stranger. This is the world we live in, this is
what we have submitted to.
My advice to you: Stop taking criticism from people. People who try to live your life
for you, do so because they can’t comfortably navigate their own.
Fight. It’s what differentiates you from everybody else today. Put down your
phone, and live. If you want something, get it. In the words of
Shim Moore from the Sick Puppies, “Fear is the dumbest thing we’ve
created in our minds. It stands in the way of everything, and achieves nothing.”
Fear is a hazardous chemical that alters your perception of reality.
Everything is achievable, you just have to be willing to fight hard enough.
Forget fear because, it only aides you in becoming what you’re scared of. Send out positive vibes, and positive things will come into your life.
When a new opportunity approaches, embrace it with open arms.
Even if it’s negative, don’t be scared, you may need the lesson.
Live for yourself, and pay no mind to what other people say.
This life is yours, and yours alone. It’s time to start living it.
