I have faced death, so why is life so scary? I have faced broken hearts, tragedy, and pain more times that I can count and I've always made it through. I've put my body, mind, and heart through torture, but I have never truly failed. I know how strong I am and how much I can handle. But it's easy to lose sight of that. Sometimes it takes a mixture of good friends and total strangers to remind me to take a deep breath, step back, and remember to put faith in myself when I feel like there's nothing else to believe in. I have always gotten myself through the tough situations, and I know I can in the future. So. I'm taking a step back, taking a deep breath, and trusting in my incredible strength to push me where I need to go. And I already feel more at peace.
