You have to fight for it, fight like fucking hell for it. You have to want to put the pieces of your soul back together bad it makes your heart ache.
You have to learn to forgive and forget. You are in control of your life. How you live it is entirely up to you. Greatness and success don’t just get handed to us. It’s hard work.
Set your goals, small or big, and work for them. Even the smallest victories get you close to the end goal. If you don’t think you deserve the future you want then prove yourself wrong. It’ll seem like a lifetime of failures but you’ll look back and wonder how you made it and it’s because of you. It’s all about you. It always has been.
I promise that even when the world feels against you (and it will many times) and you’re ready to just give up, that that’s the moment you’ll realize that you had it in you all along. Strength. Strength to keep fighting for the life you deserve.
I’m not here to sugar coat shit and tell you this will be easy. It’s going to get a lot harder before it gets better. There will be days when you can’t breathe. It’s fine.
No one said you have to be strong every day. Life wasn’t meant to be easy. That’s why life is so beautiful. I can tell you that this will shape the future you into a better, stronger person and for that alone, it will be worth the pain.
I am not trying to tell you what to do. I want you to know that I get it. I understand. I have been here. Let this pain guide you into becoming the person you never thought you could become. Use it for good.
