I close my eyes and all I see is…
Sometimes our hope takes a beating. Sometimes what we believe in most is what we believed against all odds was possible. Sometimes we find out it wasn’t possible. Sometimes all we are left with is the knowledge that no amount of hard work, attention, wishes, and dreams would change the outcome. Sometimes life is just so close to unbearable that unthinkable alternatives become thinkable. Sometimes the sadness and weight of circumstances takes a toll. Sometimes we just have to chin up and carry on. Sometimes we have to close our eyes and accept the darkness and remember there will be better days.
Thank you to my friends who have stood by me and understood my darkness. Thank you to my friends who brought light into dark days. Thank you to my friends that loved me when I was unlovable. Thank you to my friends who stopped their lives long enough to listen even when I had no words. I still have a long road ahead, but I know without a doubt because of you all, we got this.
