The truth will set you free

You are scared to let go of the familiar;
the familiar has a feigned ignorance of making you feel safe and comfortable.
You dismiss the voice of reason,
because you are blinded by the sole thing that barricades you.

Be true to yourself:
“If you shut up truth and bury it under the ground,
it will but grow, and gather to itself such explosive power 
that the day it bursts through, it will blow up everything in its way” (Emile Zola; 1840-1902)

You must find strength.
Surround yourself with what is positive.
Be strong.
Strength, truth and belief in yourself are the keys to unlocking 
all that binds you.

You are a free spirit;
No person characterizes your being;
No person dictates how you think, act or speak;
No person controls your life;
No person except for yourself.

    Strong message, Diana-Marie! I really dig how you incorporated the wise quote within the body of your piece, instead of at the top or bottom. Well done.
