“You are responsible for your life. If you’re sitting around waiting for someone to save you, to fix you, to even help you – you are wasting your time, because only you have the power to take responsibility to move your life forward and the sooner you get that the sooner your life gets into gear.” – Oprah Winfrey

No one is coming to save you.

If you are lucky, you might run into a good-hearted soul.

Otherwise, you are on your own – let that sink in.

This does not have to be a negative idea. You are your own hero!
