“Because sometimes the best leaders are the ones who have no interest in leading. Those are often the ones who are most interested in doing what is right, not what is popular.”

I don’t mean to sound insensitive, but this society glorifies and reverences issues. Suicide, self harm, eating disorders, you name it, we talk about them like they’re gods.

I refuse to be impressed by the enemy. God is bigger.
