Which Quotes Helped You Stand Up for Yourself?

Although Bobby is a peculiar character, we often find ourselves relating to his hardships in life. Football has become a metaphor for the battles we face head-on.

In reality, we cannot always depend on our loved ones for support. Sometimes, fighting for yourself is needed for us to grow and mature.

Some things can be really hard, but knowing that we overcame them on our own builds our confidence and strength. It also helps us stand up for others and protect them. May this collection motivate you to hold firm and tackle life.
