Things Just Happen

This is a rant book, where I can just put on issues that I come across day by day, which'll help me, but hopefully you too :) x

19. Don't hold yourself back, ever

No one needs you to stay behind for them. Sure, they need you to fall back at times so that you can catch them and pull them up, but they don't need you to stay behind them. They don't need you to stop what you're doing to help them. If you want to leave, then leave. If you don't want to hang out with the people you usually hang out with, then don't. They don't depend on you to stay alive. They have many other people around them, and yes, they need you for support, but they are strong. They need to open up their eyes to find that there are many people around them, waiting to help them. You need to open up your eyes to the fact that you are dragging yourself down, holding back to be a good friend. But you know what? A good friend is a friend who will push ahead of everyone to get to the finish line, but will at anytime be willing to take a few steps back to help them push past them as well. A good friend is a friend who will resume and work harder than ever to regain their old position.

A good friend is a friend who will make them proud.

Don't hold yourself back because your friends are behind you. Instead, push ahead to where you want to be and fall back occasionally to help them. Sure, it's hard work, but no friendship comes without hardships. Don't stay back with them if you don't want to. Maybe they are happy there. You push yourself ahead, get to the point where you want to be, make new friends there, and keep the old ones. Some of your new friends will sometimes leave as well, if they want to push ahead further, but they will always come back for you when you need them. Just wait for your old friends to call you back. Go then, when they realise how much they need you. Go when their respect for you is renewed and they will treat you better. Go only when you are needed, and spend the rest of the time as you need to spend it. Until then, keep moving forward and remember those who have left you and those you left behind.
