You can’t be a role model and give up at the same time.
Every now and then someone tells me that a friend of theirs really enjoys my articles and it’s a reminder for me that you never know who is watching. When you want to give up... When you feel like it’s not worth it... When everything seems to have gotten more complicated than it used to be... Remember that someone’s looking up to you. Remember that they’re following in your footsteps, and it’s not about being perfect it’s about never giving up. Show them how to weather the storms. Show them how to be the bigger person. Show them what it means to live with integrity. Lead them the right way and remember you needed that same guidance when you were in their position.
