It’s never permanent, it’s not forever. Just like the passing clouds, this, too, shall pass, but it shall pass with time. 

Seconds. Minutes. Days. Weeks. Months. 

You’re an enigma of chaos and your mind a volcanic eruption of emotions, but that’s what makes you YOU. 

 
You wouldn’t be YOU if not for the nights you spent wondering why you couldn’t be like the rest. You wouldn’t be you if not for the countless thoughts that made you wonder why your life wasn’t like the rest. You wouldn’t be you if not for the tears that reminded you of the love you lost. You wouldn’t be you if not for that dark tunnel you’re forced to travel through.

 It’s dark, it’s deep. 

Deep enough to teach you your worth. Deep enough to teach you what hitting the lows feel like because you wouldn’t know you’re rising higher if not for the pits of the lows. Because you’re not just flesh ready to be a corpse.

And this isn’t your end, it’s just your beginning. The beginning of a beautiful life ready to be unleashed – a life only for the one that endures. And the endurance will be worth it. 

Life is beautiful, but it is beautifully flawed. Life is ugly, but only when you let it dull its shine. 

So grasp the reigns of your life. You are your own savior. You are all you need. And you will turn the beast of life into one hell of a beauty. 

It’s not going to be easy, but you’re going to have to do this – for YOURSELF. It’s not going to be easy, but it will be worth it. It’s not going to be easy, because you’re not easy. You’ve got more than what you think you’ve got, because all you need to flip the tables in the game of life is YOU. 

Because if not you, who?
