Leave a comment on what character you relate to the most and what character you relate me to the most. Do so and I will reply telling you what character I relate to you the most. No restrictions it could be anime, cartoons, novels, sitcoms whatever.

 Character I relate myself to the most is Alibaba from Magi. While I act more like Sinbad or Aladin, I relate more to Alibaba. Reason being, he comes off as suave, smart and charming and all. But right under the surface he's actually really sensitive, a crybaby almost. But he still has this genuin care for others that make people love and follow him and a determination to always become better. He also has a hard time letting go, good or bad.

For years now I've wanted to become a YouTube personality. Famous or not. I've tried once and failed terribly. And I never bothered to continue trying because I've always been so scared of crashing and burning. But now I'm finally trying it. I'm going to go and try my hand at it. Trying babysteps with doing Weekly Episodes reviews of the Spring Anime 2015 anime.

Well. The year is coming to a close. And, that means new years resolutions. And, I am going to throw this all out in the public. My new years resolution. Is to be strong. 

The first few years of my life in Elementary and Middle school were terrible. Having ADHD OCD and Anxiety, all the other kids thought I was retarded in Elementary school. And in Middle School, I was constantly harassed and bullied, sometimes even beat up for being fat, socially awkward, and just all around different. All the while, at I home I was also constantly put down and tossed aside. I spent everyday hating life. And in the 8th grade. I attempted to kill myself. 

After thankfully waking up the next morning, I woke up the story I will forever be grateful for. "Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann" Most people marvel at Kamina, but me, I was focused on Simon the Digger. He reminded me of myself, small and meek, not being able to stand up for himself. And then, he lost the thing that made him strong. But he found his own strength. Watching this, from start to finish. Made me want to become strong. So I did. Or at least I thought. In the summer in between 8th and 9th grade, I only became stronger physically and on the outside. I had fake confidence that was boosted by being able to find and talk to other people that were outcasts like myself. Being able to be some kind of beacon for them, constantly being praised by them. I thought I was strong. But in reality, nothing changed about me. 

I was still pathetically weak. Always relying on the praise and support of others. That was what was always keeping my head held high. in the eyes of the people that held me so great. But to myself, I was always feeling sorry for myself. And wanting others to pull me along. I may have been strong for my friends and family. But for myself I was weak. And I refuse to live like that anymore. In the words of Steve Harvey, "You have to be sick and tired, of being sick and tired."

I'm no longer going to rely on the praise of others to feel confident in my own abilities. No more excuses. No more justifications. No more feeling sorry for myself and putting myself down. Letting everyone believe in me but myself. No more trying regain what was in the past, when I can be trying to improve what will be in the future. No more trying to hold to things I know I have to let go of. No more letting other people tell me, what I am and what I am not. I know who and what I am. And strong, isn't it. But it's time to start practicing what I preach, and live by the same thing I tell others. Because I can only start winning, when I stop being scared of winning. 

My new year's resolution. Is to move forward, and not look back. To have real strength. Not for my friends. Not for my family. From here on out, I am going to start being strong for myself.
