I just follow my intuition, if something doesn’t feel right I don’t do it. I believe in karma, so I try my very best to do good to everyone, regardless if the same treatment is not received. So that’s why when people who I once considered so dear to me screw me over, I’m so reluctant to not be there for them when they’re in desperate need. Does this make me stupid? Ignorant? Naive? I don’t know, I just know I’m not mean. I can’t give my back to anyone who needs me, it’s just not in my nature. Which leads me to believe I’m just too nice, and the bad part about being nice is that people love to take advantage of nice people, and even though I’m so prone towards getting hurt, I refuse to act the opposite. Yet even though I’m capable of still being there for someone—regardless of the past— I know quite well who’s to trust and who’s definitely not. So I’m nice, I’m very nice but not stupid. Don’t take your good friends for granted, value those who are willing to do anything, I mean absolutely anything for you. There’s only so much a human being can take, and I don’t know if i can continue being this nice if things stay the same…
“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.’ You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”—Eleanor Roosevelt (via xxsimplicity)
“You don’t want to take less than you deserve, but at the same time you don’t want to put yourself under pressure by striving for too much. All you really have to do is aim for what you want, and accept assistance from the universe. Don’t question the process; just reach for your goal”—Aby Dauz (via abydauz)
“Our mistakes don’t make or break us. If we are lucky, they simply reveal who we really are, what we’re made of. Challenges will come, but if you treat them simply as tests of who you are, you’ll come out of it not bitter and victimized, but smarter and stronger.”—Donn Moomaw (via quote-book)
Is the suspension warranted? Is a two game suspension for Drew excessive punishment, just right, or not enough? Will it kill his/the Lakers rhythm? How do you think the Lakers will fare in the next 2 games in which Bynum’s out? Chime in below or in the comments!
Bynum will miss tonight’s game against Portland and Tuesday night’s game against Phoenix.
