How You Remind Me
There are certain people in my life who are constantly reminding me why I do the things that I do and who I do them for.
There are also people who make do these things in spite of the things the say and do to stop me or make it harder.
"It's not like you didn't know that, I said I love you and I swear I still do. It must have been so bad, 'cause living with me must have damn near killed you... this is how you remind me of what I really am."
I am, by my own personal definition and adaptation of the word, a realist. I look at my options objectively first, and then see which makes me feel like I can do my best at it.
Without stress in life no one would have a push to work hard, this is simply because we all hope that if we continue to fight through the crappy parts, we will be rewarded with some small great thing. Which a lot of the time is true. Though we all still ask ourselves if that one great thing was worth all the little bad things. I think so. For the most part.
I know you're probably thinking, 'this girl's thoughts are everywhere!' (laugh)
Not really. These thoughts all do have something to do with one another.
Just let me finish.
Inspiration is something we all need to motivate ourselves to do things right? And so we draw energy from those who remind us of why we do what we do. Moreover, the people who make it harder, are equally as essential because they make us feel like there is something to fight for!
Although the people who are supportive and 'remind us of why we do what we do' are a healthier motivator, I think that everyone needs that negative push as well.
Because without people telling us we can't do something, when we finally do do it, who whose faces would we laugh in?
Maybe my thoughts are all over the place and don't make sense...
Oh well. (laugh)
