“We All Have Been Degraded, We All Will Be The Greatest”
– John O’Callaghan.
This has got to be one of my favorite quotes by him to be honest. He even has this tattooed on his chest (as seen in the picture above). For the absolute reason i love this quote from him is because its speaks the honest truth from the heart and is also very witty with its play on words.
To begin with, the first half of the quote is saying that he all have had our struggles whether it was in your past, right now, or later on in your life. I believe that everyone gets the same amount of struggles in their life as everyone else does. Some get them all at once and others get them a few here and a few there, but the kicker is that if that person is strong enough to handle them.
The other half of the quote is saying that through all the obstacles in our lives, there will be something that we are proud of and will be known for. Which means we should always keep an open mind to new things. We never know when/what/where/how we are going to discover our hidden talent. So go discover the world!
“The what-if’s and the should-have’s will eat your brain.” – John O’Callaghan
In life, things happen and things don’t happen the way you want it to go. We need to be the ones that are in charge of our own lives. No one can change the way we live except ourselves. No exceptions whatsoever. If your life is a mess, then you’re the only one to blame.
“Some people want it to happen. Some wish it would happen. Others make it happen.” -Michael Jordan.
Anyone can change their life at anytime they want. They just need to be the ones willing to make the effort and change their way of living around. However, in that effort, we also need to make our lives more meaningful by creating and doing things that are memorable. Eventually, we all die. The goal in life isn’t to live forever. The goal is to create something that will.
A good friend knows when to hold you back. A best friend knows when to let you go and unleash the beast from within. Which means that a good friend will be the most “ideal” friend and wants to show that you mean something to them. However, a relationship between best friends is different. They know what they mean to each other already so there is no need for them to show how much they care for each other. The stiff kindness is not necessary. It might sound a bit odd but here’s an example:
You: “How do I look in this?”
Good Friend: “You look really pretty!”
Best Friend: “You look horrible”
As you can see, best friends always say the worst of things but mean it in the kindness of ways. They always make jokes between each other and say the things they don’t mean but the truth of the matter is that they know the other is simply joking around and just say something even meaner. It’s just how it works. That’s how you know when you finally have a best friend. P.S, Lilo & Stitch was my absolute favorite show in the world when I was a kid.
I really love this picture. It’s saying how you should keep your hope high meaning that you should aim for the highest that you can and also keep your head low as in don’t try to be the center of attention. Instead, let the success of your future speak for itself. You don’t need to brag about being successful as long you know that you are.
