Most things perish. But theres one thing that will never.......

I’m sure you’ve heard this statement many times. And it is true. All things must come to an end; good or bad. We can’t expect everything to last forever. But we also can’t believe that bad things will last forever, because they won’t. I know this from first hand experience. Just listen to me. Hear me out;


Everything must come to and end

The nightmares

The torture

The pain

The confusion

It all must come to an end.

In one way or another

We must always have hope

We must never give up

Look for the light in the darkest places

Look for the silver lining to every cloud


But we also cannot believe that all the good things in our life will last forever


The fun

The joy

The contentment


Must all come to an end


But there is one thing out of this life that will never end. It will never fade away. It will never perish. And that is Love. True love will last forever. It is endless. Love is amazing.

I have been very unfortunate in my life. I’ve gone through very bad things. I’ve been in that point in my life where there was so much pain, so many lies, so many days I went without knowing whether I was even going to be alive the next day. I thought it was never going to end. I gave up any hope that I had for a long time. I didn’t care about anything anymore. But then I became stronger and regained a slight shimmer of hope. I saw the small glimmer of light at the very end of the tunnel. And look where I’m at now; Remarkable family, in a beautiful home, and am currently at the beach. Who would have ever thought that I would be here today? I went from living a complete nightmare, to living a dream.


And yes I know eventually this will have to all come to an end at some point, But I am okay with that now. Because I know that no matter what, I will always have love.

Love is the answer to many things. Maybe not everything. But it is the answer to a lot of things. I have found that if you have love in your life, you are a much happier person.


Love is amazing! <3

This certainly gave me hope. I have been at a very low point in my life for the past 5 years, and things are progressively becoming worse as the months go by. I try to not lose hope. Thank you for sharing your story. Hopefully one day I will look back on things and smile. Hopefully.
