Ride or Die

Are you a "ride or die" kind of person? Someone who follows through on their commitments no matter what? Or do you tend to flake out when things get tough? In life, people often reveal their true character during difficult situations. It's easy to make promises and commitments when everything is going well, but it's when things get challenging that our true nature is exposed.


Being a "ride or die" person means being reliable, dependable, and trustworthy. It means following through on your commitments, even when it's inconvenient or difficult. It means being there for your friends and loved ones when they need you, and showing up even when it's not easy.


On the other hand, flaking out on commitments or letting people down when things get tough can damage your reputation and your relationships. It can lead to a lack of trust and respect from others, and can even harm your own self-esteem and sense of integrity.


So, who are you?


Are you someone who follows through on your commitments and shows up for others in tough situations? Or do you tend to back out when things get challenging? If you want to be a "ride or die" kind of person, start by being honest with yourself and others about what you can and can't do. Don't make promises that you can't keep, and be upfront about your limitations. And when you do commit to something, follow through on it to the best of your ability. Tough times and situations expose people but it is a great opportunity to look at yourself and to self reflect and learn during these challenges. You may also discover people around you aren't who you thought they were. Learn from these & move on. ONLY YOU are in control of your mindset and your output. There will be seasons of your relationships with others and that's ok, people will disappoint you but don't dwell in it, learn from it.


In the end, being a "ride or die" person isn't about being perfect or never making mistakes. It's about having the integrity and character to do what you say you're going to do, even when it's hard. So, who do you want to be?
