Quote taken fromthiscarmillaseries video with Jordan and Elise. Had to rewind it a couple of times to get the exact quote because I got caught up in Jordan’s enthusiasm. :)) This one’s in yellow, just a little nod to one of my favorite props from the show–the yellow pillow.
“He said that I could be anything and do anything, and no one can stop me but me.” I say what he did, “You are your own anchor, Ryke. When you fail, you hurt yourself more than anyone else. Do you want to keep burning or are you going to let yourself rise?” My brother– I don’t think he ever had someone to tell him this. He just kept failing until there was no way he could ever succeed. I reach out to Daisy and tuck a piece of hair behind her ear. “So i’m the anchor and the phoenix, and it was around this time that I learned to run for me. I stopped winning for my fucking mom, for my dad. Every achievement, every good grade– that was mine. I started living my dreams and I stopped living theirs.
