You can make people do so many bad things. Drugs, sex, drinking.
Everyday, I must fight the pressure.
The pressure to fit in.
The pressure to drink.
The pressure to give up in life.
The pressure to let it all go.
The pressure to go out and party.
But I swear to this whole wide world. I will NOT give into you. No matter how hard you try, no matter how many times you show up in a day, I won’t back down, I will fight you off, even if it means I’m never ‘cool’ or ‘fun’.
This is my promise to the world, to my family, to my friends.
I may struggle, but I won’t give in. Ever.
