Success can be a lonely road. It can be a tough road. It can be a hard road.

It’s not for everyone. Those who follow others like sheep, will never know who they truly are. Only those who follow their own path can discover their true potential.

Those who fly alone have the strongest wings. Those who walk alone have the strongest direction. the rest will always be in need of others for their survival. They will always need attention, need recognition to survive.

I am at peace alone. Needing no attention, no recognition, and still I thrive.

I am not saying those who have support are weak. I am not saying you must go at it alone to gain strength. This is just for those who have fought battles alone. Those who have felt like they don’t fit in. those who have never had support in anything they do.

All of those who feel no one believes in them, you don’t need them to believe in you, if you believe in you. You don’t need their support if you’ve got your own back.

The best part is when you truly live the life you want to live. When you speak your truth, when you embrace who you are, then you gain real respect and real love.

People love those who have the guts to be themselves, those who have the courage to follow their heart. Why? Because it is rare. Why? Because most people wish they could do the same.

Show them the way. Keep going. believe in yourself. It will all come good in the end. And when it does, you won’t only inspire yourself to be more, you will have inspired so many others. I had to learn to fight alone and because of that, I am strong alone. I am strong. Full stop. I developed inner strength that cannot be broken. I am unbreakable. Because of the pain, I am strong. Because of the struggle, I have character most will never know.

I appreciate others more than ever. I have more compassion than ever. I had to go deep into the darkness, now I have more depth, now I can see clearer. I had to face huge internal challenges, now I can defeat any challenge. I will destroy every challenge.

I am proud of who I have become. I am proud I have overcome. I am proud I kept going I am proud of Who I am, who I’ve become. I am proud I stay true to myself, because now I can live as myself with respect from others, and most importantly, pride and respect from myself.
