And eventually you will.
To weep is to risk appearing sentimental.
To reach out to another is to risk involvement.
To expose feelings is to risk exposing your true self.
To place your ideas and dreams before a crowd is to risk their loss.
To love is to risk not being loved in return.
To hope is to risk pain.
To try is to risk failure.
But risks must be taken, because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.

practice saying no
to people who are not worth your time
to that feeling that you’re not worth anything
to thoughts that you will never be happy
practice saying no and being in control of your thoughts
thinking positively is a habit
say no to negative thoughts and people
and yes to a positive outlook
Feeling bad and thinking bad of yourself is a habit, but that can be changed
This gif did the job beautifully.

"There are Negroes who will never fight for freedom.
There are Negroes who will seek profit for themselves alone from the struggle. There are even some Negroes who will cooperate with their oppressors. These facts should distress no one.
Every minority and every people has its share of opportunists, profiteers, free-loaders and escapists.”
-Martin Luther King, Jr.
