There are so many popular figures who want people to think they are strong and tough because they use substances and party all night long.
To me, strong is when you can sit through your problems and feel your emotions, when you don’t have to hide them.
There have been nights where I’ve had to sit on my hands because I want to act out, because I physically can’t sit still in the pain or I’m trying to distract myself from living in the moment.
Stop running and start dealing with life and your problems.
It could be as simple as not checking your phone when you’re uncomfortable or alone.
Listen to what’s going on in your mind and respect the thoughts coming to you.
If you’re spending your entire life chasing the next party, what are you running away from?
