There will be tough times. There will be times where its hard to get out of bed, times where you have to trust strangers, times full of uncertainty, frustration, and fear. There will be times where youre treading water and you sink a little and swallow what youre fighting against. There will be dark clouds brooding on the horizon. There will be times when those clouds are over your head. There will be times where you are forced to fake it until you make it. There will be times youre at war with yourself and there will be times when you encounter walls that stand too tall to conquer alone.
But those times will pass as long as you dont forget the burning on the inside and keep fighting. The sky is blue above those clouds. The tide will recede and the water will get shallower. The strangers will become friends.. and those people care.. they believe. They know that youre stronger than you think you are.
You gotta keep pushing. You cant give up hope. You cant roll over.
Just know that youre worth it. Clear your conscience and ride away.
