Be Strong

"Be strong! There is no other way but to move forward like the hands of time. You need to face your fears, or you'll live cowering forever, regretting every chance that you did not take." "I wish I had that strength. But right now, I can't really see the sun." "Don't be too pessimistic. The sun is rising for you somewhere out there. You just need to know where you should look and use your heart to see it." "But how come that my horizon was so dark ever since I was born?" "Don't say that. You're not the only one. There are people out there who walk on darker paths than yours, but they never cease fighting to see the light. Your time will come. Just wait." "I am trying. How I wish it is that easy. But ever since, I've already broken almost all bones of my body trying to reach the top of my mountain to finally see the sun." "That is really how it is. Misery is just a bitter spice of human life, and adversity is its way to make you taste better the sweetness of success. If you don't experience hardship, there's no way you can appreciate the value of toiling. Every blood you pour is a grain that you will reap." "Thank you for being my heart and spirit always, even if I slip often. I don't know what to do if you're gone." "Don't be bothered too much by things that have not yet come. Besides, whatever happens, my heart and spirit, including my soul, will always be with you." "Thank you! You're the best thing that ever happened to me."
