“A FRIEND IN NEED, IS A FRIEND INDEED”
Life is a fucker sometimes. You go through life mostly feeling average, having a few moments of brilliance and sense of accomplishment, and the rest is disappointment. The disappointing times, when life kicks you down, stomps on you, and fucking breaks your heart into a million pieces, those are the moments that matter. How you recover from them, is what defines who you are. If you let defeat consume you and give up, you probably don’t deserve your dreams anyway. What really shows character is taking what’s shattered and taking the slightly rockier road that will eventually lead you to the same destination.
I’m not saying you have to be hard as nails, nobody can. When we are defeated is when we realize who is truly on our side, and who is only along for the ride. I’ve realized that lately, and sadly had to acknowledge that some people were not there for the long haul. On the other hand, I’ve realised who is, and I cherish them more than anything in this world, because without them, it would be really fucking hard to pick yourself up after being thrown out and made feel worthless.
Life sometimes is like that, the big people in charge don’t consider your feelings. You are not their priority, and you do not matter to them. It’s a harsh reality but it’s one that we will all meet at least once in our lives. It’s scary. IT’S TERRIFYING. Luckily, we don’t (hopefully) have to go through it alone, and there will always be someone to tell us that we do matter in the big picture, the small defeats will be forgotten, but the victories and those who stood by us won’t.
