Being Truthful & Standing Up

http://theberry.com/2013/04/10/a-couple-of-quotes-22-photos-2/
I found this picture on Pinterest the other day and it really meant something to me. There are two sides to this; the first is about telling the truth and being an honest person. People, that may be your "friends", don't always tell the truth or they gloss over things for fear of what other people will think of them. This is extremely common in high school and other school like situations. People want to be cool, they want to fit in. This is not a good thing, because you are falling into a pattern of deception and loosing sense of who you are. It is important to build yourself on a pyramid of truth and stand up for what truly matters to you. So what if you like spending your Friday nights at home, instead of at the school football game. Be truthful to your personality and spirit; don't go along with the crowd.
The second is standing up for yourself; don't be afraid to say no. You should not change what you believe just to fit in with a group of people. You will be threatened with hard decisions, things that you know are not right, and you need to be the one to stand up and make a difference. Many people will hope and rely on others to make the difference, but I empower you to be the difference. Stand up for what everyone else is afraid to say, be the person that will set the new status quo. You may be nervous, you may be scared, your voice may tremble with fear, but knowing you stood up for what is right and attempted to make a change is power. You may not get the results you hoped, but you can be secure in knowing that you got at least one new person to think over if not change their decision. Words are powerful and you should always be sure that you are using them for good and not for evil.

Thanks for Reading,
