So many people I love and care about deeply are going through the toughest (I hope) times of their lives right now. To all you warriors out there who aren't sure what the future holds, try to take it easy on yourself. You haven’t given up. You are trying your hardest. You are surviving. That’s enough, no matter what anyone else says. <3
That actually makes me feel a little bit better. I know that sounds strange, but I fear loving another for just that reason - trust. If the same thing were to happen ever again, I truly don't think I'd be able to come out the other side like I did, kicking, scratching, and screaming (metaphorically speaking) this time. So... let's just keep it simple, shall we?
