Or you can ignore it.

There will always be darkness. There will always be those who attempt to quench the lights you shine around you. They will demean you, question your motives, and make you seem like a silly, misguided warrior.

There are a lot of ways to handle negativity, but none of them are better then the simplicity of extinction.

  1. Ignore it.

The monster dies when you refuse to remember he’s lurking around every corner.

Ignore it all.

You get to decide if you stay terrorized or not. You decide whether the cruelty of others stops you and your mission. No one else.

No bullies. No badgering. No belittling of your motives and motivations.

Ignore the darkness. Shine bright.
