Perceptions can guide us, perceptions can blind us. Everything that is our perceptions is everything we ever will see, everything we will hope to be, all our opinions, our dreams. Being true to yourself will let your soar the feathered flights of birds, soaring the heights of the hatred and jealous mockery of the people who wish to do as you did. But with power of succees comes the responsibility of still believing in the things you did before, not to let your being melt away and to be frozen in a personality of condescension and the mockery that you powered through to get to where you were. This frozen mutation will change who you were, what you saw, the things you hoped to be, your opinions, your dreams.
Perceptions can guide us, but dont let it blind you.
