Life is always in constant motion
This is a topic I've really been thinking a lot about. The world is in constant motion, people's action, opinions, and mindsets will forever be dynamic. It is extremely simple minded to base interactions with people based on preconceived concepts and labels. You never know how people will react to you, but you can always be responsible and in control of yourself.
Stay in control of your goals and your ideals BUT at the same time never let them overwhelm you. Even those that think they figured it all out are not immune to our worlds natural state of flux. All great people experience ups and downs, birth and death, success and failure. To resist these natural cycles is to resist greatness. So hang in there and keep pushing it no matter what.
