Don’t compromise yourself. You are all you’ve got. ~ Janis Joplin ~
When we don’t know who we are, it’s easy to compromise ourselves. When we don’t know where we stand on an issue, it’s easy to be swayed by a forceful voice. Values may be cloudy in our minds, or we may not be aware of them at all. It’s then that we are vulnerable to the persuasion of another.
I will search high and low
to find happiness within myself.
I will be grateful for my growth
and fulfill my desires on my terms.
I’m appreciative towards my
fellow man and woman for providing guidance.
But, I have to allow my own wings flap open
and soar about the open sky searching
patiently to land on my own two feet,
in order to create a world
I trustingly share me with others.
