Life, it can be a rather scary thing when you think about it. While you’re a kid, you don’t have to worry about much, but then, life goes on. As you get older you move away from home, you have to meet people’s expectations and support yourself. Make no mistake, it’s a cruel world, there is little mercy and can be relentless in it’s pursuit to tear you down. There are days when you wonder if it’s really worth putting up fight, if you shouldn’t just give up.

Then there are the things that you remind you why you never give up. Your family, the people who will never stop loving you and caring for you. Your friends, the people you can confide in and share a laugh with. Your soulmate, the one who loves you more than the whole world and would go to the moon and back just to make you smile. It’s real battle, between a scary world, and the reasons we stay.

I have fought the battle many a time, so far I have won, but I will admit, that I came within a sliver of defeat more than once. Though this is a message to you, do not give in. Think of yourself as a light in a dark room, because that’s what you are, to someone in your life, whether you realize it or not. There is so much more in this world that is worth pushing on for, no matter how difficult. There is something worth fighting for, it’s called life.
