I love this piece... I wish I knew who to attribute it to. It reminds me of Banksy (naturally) but I resonate with what it 'says'.
So often we second guess ourselves, or take a back seat to appease and please others. We put their feelings or their truth ahead of our own. We don't want the fight. We don't want the drama. Yet, it is only ourselves that lose out in the end.
So... "If you want to achieve greatness, stop asking for permission"... stop looking for recognition and just own what you do and who you are. PERIOD. I will work on this.
