To Be Controlled By Circumstance Is To Declare Weakness

I took one step forward two steps back
Was this close to a heart attack
And no, don’t wanna do it again.

Living life as a contradiction – knowing what you want, who you are, but only held back by circumstance. Knowing what you want and how to get it, restricted by a probable consequence, only means that one must change perspective so to achieve such goals.

To be controlled by circumstance is to declare weakness.
To care, is to deny oneself.
To be selfless, is to fail.
To succeed, is to be.

Thus, when all is said and done, I will look back on my life, the people I’ve had to push out and those I’ve kept around, only to proudly admit to myself that their problems are not mine.

To live my life is to not indulge in the issues and broken childhoods of those who will only bring you down. To climb, is to ignore the failures set out by those who have already succeeded. And to succeed, is to climb.
