Life can be unpredictable sometimes. Just when you think you have it all figured out, life will throw you a curve ball. Dreams can be shattered, hearts can be broken, and loss can become unbearable. The light that you once saw and followed can seem so far away. The people you thought you knew, say and do things you never thought they would. Hope can seem like a distant memory.
We all have darkness we have to walk through and pain we have to bear, its how you choose to react to it that will effect where you end up. You can't let other people control your happiness and your quest to find success in your life.
Know who you are and don't let anyone make you feel bad about it. No one can take anything away from you unless you let them. Other people will always try to tear you down to make themselves feel better, especially if they are hurt and broken themselves. Everyone is responsible for their own actions, you can't make someone do anything they didn't want to do.
Stand by what you know is true and be brave in the face of someone who try's to hurt you. Don't let other people's words have power over your future. You will succeed in anything you pursue as long as you keep moving forward and never give up no matter what is put in your way to try and stop you.
