Standing your ground is fighting for what you believe. It is conviction, and the courage to follow through. It is not settling. It is improving, even though being good does not bring success.
Standing your ground is cutting the bullshit, doing right by you and having a conscience. It’s. A lost cause but knowing you can’t live it down if you don’t fight this war.
It’s the one regret I don’t want to have. The epitaph thing we all think about at some point in life. I want it to say,
Here lies Val. She stood her ground.
Sigh. Today was one of those days.
