Stand up for something, even if it means standing alone. Because often times, the one who flies solo has the strongest wings.
One principle that we must learn in our lives is that it is way easier to believe and stand for something, than not to believe in anything and fall for everything. If there is something you believe in, really believe in it, with a firm unwavering faith. Life has its ups and its downs, and life will at many times try to discourage you from holding on to what roots you, and to what helps to support your foundation in it.
