It’s been 33 years. 33 Years where I knew I didn’t fit in anyplace. 33 years of loneliness that a few friends knew how to put to an end. This trip to L.A. has made me find home. Let me share some of my story.

Climb your Brick Walls and Fulfill your Dreams.

The brick walls are there for a reason.
The brick walls are not there to keep us out.

The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something.
Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough.

They’re there to stop the other people.

Randy Pausch

How many times have people tried to steal your convictions? How many times have you been told “It’s not worth it”, “Let it go, everything will be better” or even “Let it go, don’t hold on”?

Be Strong despite EVERYTHING

Tough times never last, but tough people do.

Robert Schuller

Am I really a strong person? What does it mean to be a strong person?

For a long time I believed that being a strong person meant ignoring your emotions, forgetting about them, and living under an eternal lie. I believed that strong people couldn’t cry, they couldn’t show feelings, because they would automatically become weak. I thought crying made you less strong, and therefore less man. I believed that the nature of man was how strong he is, and therefore that feelings were useless.
