16 quotes to keep your spirit high.

The vast majority of society has unknowingly swallowed a nightmare pill. In it, a little virus called negative-thinking thrives. We are currently experiencing the best time to be alive. We have worlds of information at our fingertips, the economy is stable, and our healthcare is more advanced than ever. Yet, for the most part, the sum of our rote and routine conversations is, "Life's a bitch."

Instead of relishing in the comfort our forefathers worked so hard to provide for us, we paradoxically wish we could go back to their time, a "simpler" time. We reject our present comfort and judge life, this huge, insurmountable phenomenon, not for what it actually is, but by how it is perceived by us as individuals. And we say, "Life sucks. I miss when life was simple. I miss the good old days."

Look, I get it. Life can be tough. But I think this outlook has to do more with wanting to be young again (simpler times AKA less responsibility therefore less complexity) than it has to do with rejecting present day life. We're wearing nostalgia goggles, and it's causing this self inflicted, delusional form of tunnel vision. It's normal to miss our youths, a time where everything seemed a little more calm because our peers didn't hold us to this strange adult standard we've created as a society. However, just because we're not that young anymore doesn't mean life has suddenly become awful. And do you really want to be your teenaged, angst-ridden self again? Probably not.

Now, let's tackle the aforementioned 'strange adult standard' and get on to the positive side of things. Like I said, we've kind of swallowed this nightmare pill. This way of thinking that dictates, "Life is not fun. Stay in line. Don't ask questions. Be like everyone else or there will be consequences." We've been conditioned to keep each other in line like a bunch of brainwashed monkeys. Have you ever taken a little extra time for yourself, or just done anything special for yourself, and received the reaction "Who do you think you are?" from someone else? It's like people are confusing self-care with selfishness, standards with narcissism, self-worth with arrogance. You were born free. You were born with the privilege of life, and at the end of the day it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks. Ultimately, you only have to answer to, and live with, yourself. You deserve a good life. We all do. Hopefully the following 16 quotes will reaffirm that for you.

The Final Season of 'Game Of Thrones'

I'm excited and sad all at the same time.

***** SPOILER ALERT*****


Now that it's upon us I don't know if I'm ready.

Does everyone remember what happened last season or are you like me and doing the GOT binge before the series finale?

I just finished season 1 and I'm starting in season 2 because if I'm going to binge it I'm going to do it the right way it's going to be from the beginning, besides who gets tired of watching Joffrey die?

My burning question that I'm sure EVERYONE wants to know is who will be on the throne in the end? Will it be Daenerys or Jon? I have my speculations or who I would rather see win.

Jon should rule. He was born of Fire and Ice. His father being Rheagar Targaryen and his mother Lyanna Stark. Fire and Ice. Then again, there are the stories that were told to Cersei when she was a young girl by the witch that there would be a girl prettier than her to rule. Does that mean Dani (AKA Daenerys)?

Or will she rule beside Jon? Will the two of them be a couple and rule the Kingdoms together? I'm dying to know! But these two characters are not my only focus at the end of the Final Season.

Where will Bran wind up with his abilities? What about Arya? Will she remain in Winterfell to be Sansa's executioner? Will she leave and go to King's landing if Jon takes the throne?

My time with Game of Thrones has been brief because I came in late on the show, probably season 4, I'm not sure, but I've poured over so much research, reading through the wiki pages online to reading actual books printed after the series began. It's a vast and intriguing subject.

What am I going to with my life once the season ends? There will be a hole in my heart were GOT once was. The fans of this show no matter who they root for will be crying at the end because someone's favorite is more likely to die than to live through the whole show.

If I could choose to put anyone on the Throne it would be Jon. He is honest and just like Eddard Stark raised all his children to be. He would technically be the ruler that all the faithful Targaryen supporters have been looking for. A Dragon to sit on the throne again. but, so would Dani.

Some wonder if she would go mad like her father because she can learn that way in some of her rulings. Like at Veas Dothrak, she killed all the men and took the women for her followers. Was that really necessary? She's a strong woman like Cersei but when compared there is a huge line that divides the two.

Both are loved and hated but honestly, I don't think that either of them belongs on the Throne. As for the rest, I am looking forward to seeing the way that it plays out. I have heard a rumor that George R. R. Martin has given the answer to who sits on the Throne of Iron.

Games of Thrones will truly be mourned in my house after it ends but I'm excited, to say the least for the Final Season.
