Past Words of Encouragement

Here, you will find past "words of encouragement" from the home page. so incase you need some reassuring...

Be happy with what you have. you may not be rich, and you may not have the best family in the world, but you have your personallity. that is what counts the most in a person. not their power or greed, but their pride and conscience.
 
Never let someone tell you "you cant". if they do, be determined to prove them wrong. never stop trying, and never give up hope. You CAN do anything you put your mind to.

Its the new year, so therefore its time to start over. dont hold grudges or hate for something that happened in the past.

Your whole life you will have someone trying to put you down. if you hear it enough, you will start to believe it. dont let anyone tell you you're something that you're not. stand up! be Proud! Don't keep your mouth shut! and remember, dont use violence to get some respect, use ur head.

always be yourself, no matter what. if your trying to make new friends and meet new people, be yourself. dont disguise your identity just to impress them. all your doing is starting off on a lie. lieing to yourself, and the new people, or old ones. so always be yourself... its the best thing to do.

"the evil that men do lives after them, the good is oft interred with their bones" - Antony (Julius Caesar) start reconizing peoples good qualities. don't get hung up on their mistakes, and encourage them to learn from it.
 
 
"NOW  IS THE TIME! We've got to not live in total fear. It's hard right now, but it's just as important than ever! NOW IS THE TIME to really put forth the last ditch efforts and hard work to get it in while you can. NOW IS THE TIME to step forward and not stand back! NOW IS THE TIME to do anything and everything you can to make the days as good as possible for as many people as you can! NOW IS THE TIME to stop waiting for later! NOW IS THE TIME to grind your hands down to the bone in a passionate effort to live a lifetime in everyday! NOW IS THE TIME to do stuff without worrying about what you won't be able to do later! NOW IS THE TIME to figure it all out! NOW IS THE TIME to help. NOW IS THE TIME to quit being a f*cking wimp! NOW IS THE TIME to do stuff rather than talk about it! NOW IS THE TIME to quit being down on stuff! NOW IS THE TIME to live like you deserve to be living! NOW IS THE TIME to love it! NOW IS THE TIME THAT WILL NEVER COME AGAIN!!! RIGHT NOW!!! NOW!!!"----Andrew W.K
 
 
lately, i've been going through some tough times myself. i've lost hope, gave up on trying, and i gave up on my dreams. i realized that if i dont have hope, i dont have any life left inside of me. something today went off inside of me, and told me to make the best of everything. ya, i've been depressed a lot lately, but as long as i never give up on anything, i will always have hope, and i will always be the best that i can.

YOU dont have to prove how strong you are to earn respect. YOU dont have to show how brave you aer to be admired. YOU dont have to be perfect to be loved. YOU need to only be YOURSELF."
 
"Imagine theres no heaven, Its easy if you try, No hell below us, Above us lonely sky./Imagine all the people, Living for today/Imagine theres no countries, It isnt hard to do, Nothing to kill or die for, And no religion too/ Imagine all the people, Living life in peace/ You may say Im a dreamer, But Im not the only one, I hope someday you join us, And the world will be as one/ Imagine no possession, I wonder if you can, No mean full greed, no hunger, A brotherhood of man/ Imagine all the people, Sharing all the world/ You may say Im a dreamer, But Im not the only one, I hope someday you join us, And the world will live as one " John Lennon-Imagine
 
Don't let anyone tell you that what you are doing isn't "normal". what is it be normal anyways? being normal, technically, isnt being normal at all. because everyone is trying to hard to be different. just do what you want to do because you enjoy doing it, not becuase it's the "normal" or "different" way to be.

never stop trying. if there's something you want in life, or soemthing you dont want, dont give up trying. don't let other people get in the way of what you want. go straight for it and attack it at the neck!

is this the point where we give up?
is this the point where we give in?
is this the point where we turn ourselves in?

is this the time to ask questions?
is this the time to seek answers?
is this the time to throw it all in?

when enough is enough that's when you know that you're halfway there
when enough is enough that's when you know that you're halfway there
you're halfway there
that's when you know that you're halfway there

this is the point where we stand up
this is the point where we take back
the things that are keeping us from being free

when enough is enough that's when you know that you're halfway there
when enough is enough that's when you know that you're halfway there
that's when you know that you're halfway there

your voice the airwaves sent you prayed my life would end,
the wasted time I spent ashamed I called you friend,
give me one reason, I need a reason, one reason

---Halfway There----Rise Against
