We all face scary things at some stage in our lives. Sometimes we make a point of doing the right thing, yet nothing seems to be going our way. We stand up for what we believe is right, but all we get in return is criticism and funny looks. Those are the crucial moments in your life. The decisions you make when that happens can determine everything.
The easy way out is to stop fighting, to stay in the situation and just to give up. When that happens we go against what we believe and we conform to what the majority does. When you choose to do that, you will lose who you are, and become who others want you to be.
Rather make a decision to stand up and be heard. Continue to fight for what you believe in. It’s the most difficult thing to do and it will lead to frustration and hurt. It will require faith in your values because you have faith in God. It will require passion, but it will never make you feel defeated. And you need to surround yourself with people who celebrate you. People who have the same values and high standards that you have.
The river you need to cross at this point in your life might be deep, cold and scary, but the prospect of staying where you are and allowing your values to die, is far more frightening.
So… start swimming in faith and continue to swim with passion.
