So f@#$ your dreams
And don't you pick at our seams
I'll turn into a monster for you, If you pay me enough
None of this counts, if you do, cloud up - Mumford and Sons
These lyrics changed my life a few years ago. I was walking home from school and it was like getting smacked in the face.
At the time it felt like I had so many people pushing me or using me for different things. And here I was going along with it, saying cool and keeping my head together, never taking a stand for myself. From the moment those words hit my ears though, it was like something stood up inside of me, that refused to let me be pushed over or taken advantage of. I'm still on a journey with this and learning, but I will never forget this day where I chose to take a stand for myself, I chose that i'm better than that. 📸 = @nudaraphoto
