First off, fuck you world.
Somehow, you've succeeded in tearing me down in each and every way possible.
You have taken the ones I love away from me, you have made me feel more pain than I thought could ever be felt, and you, without failure, broke me— even when there was nothing left to break.
Time and time again, any progress I made was stifled by your cruelty. Any hope I had you attempted to crush, along with my spirit.
You watched as I desperately pleaded with you to end it all, and stood there, laughing at me the entire time. You did all of this, and guess what…
I’m still fucking standing.
You did your best to silence me, yet here I am speaking out louder than ever. Because of you, I have a life that’s been filled with pain and despair, yet I still smile. You have broken my heart time and time again, but I still laugh.
You have watched as I was hated and abused by those I thought cared for me, yet I still love fiercely and care deeply. You sat back as life knocked me over and continued to kick me while I was down, but I got up each and every time.
So world, is this all you got?
Because I assure you, nothing you ever do to me will take me down for the count. I will always rise and I will always keep going even if everything in me tells me not to.
I will continue to push through every traumatic hardship, every painful experience, and every heartbreak with iron steel strength. I will match every horrible obstacle you throw my way,with hope and love.
All of it will only make me stronger. Don’t believe me? Go ahead. Do your worst. I’ll prove you wrong each and every time.
See, here’s the thing— I’m stronger than ever before.
And I actually have you to thank for that. In a weird, twisted way, thank you for putting me through hell, because if you didn't, I wouldn’t have developed the strength needed to fight my way to heaven.
Without your shit, I never would’ve realized my own inner strength.
So bring it on world, because nothing you do will ever tear me down again…you can bet on that.
