The only things that will degrade you are the things and thoughts you allow to do so.
Use every tool in existence to strengthen your will.
God. Resolve. Purpose. Mind. Heart. Faith. Love. Victory. Success. Freedom. Courage. Kindness. Carve your conviction with light against the shadows that linger.
Nothing can destroy you; the human soul isn’t created that way. Only God has that power and he wishes that upon none of us. If you want victory, you have to fight everything inside that will try and inhibit you from shining. You have to thrash against the walls of doubt and despair. Rage against the emptiness.
God willing, we will overcome our obstacles.
Let your brilliance seep out of your skin.
