Life is hard. It’s cruel sometimes.

It’s merciless and unfair,

but we all go through difficult times,

one way or another.

You have had more than your share of knocks lately.

I’ll give you that, but it doesn’t mean you get to quit.

No one gets to quit.

You keep fighting everyday

and sooner or later, the grief fades a little.

You grow stronger, find joy again,

and everything gets easier.

You come out of it more equipped

to handle the next new wave

which will come eventually.

There will always be waves. – Julianne MacLean
