Life is about the fight. You always have to be ready for it. You have to be ready to stand up for yourself because there are few people who will stand up for you. And because half the time the fight is against your own fears.

The fight.

To not be manhandled by a mulitbillion dollar corporation still willing to cheat you out of $100. To not be shoved under the mat by your government. To get that raise you know you deserve. To be seen. To be heard.

It's all a fight.

To keep moving when you'd rather stay put.
To be still when you want to run.
To choose the hard road because there is something worth having at the end of it.
To keep loving someone when you can't see their face.
To keep loving someone when you know how it feels to lose someone you love.
To live when you know you are going to die.

You have to pick your battles. Save your strength. Pick out what you think is worth fighting for. If you can't fight for love, over and over, scar crossing scar, climbing over fear and loss and depression, and all the minefields in your brain. . .then none of the other fights matter.
