My words represent my perspective, formed through struggles, mistakes and triumphs. They are not always correct, in form or message, and they do not always apply to everyone in all situations. The aim of my words are not to ostracize or cast blame, but simply to share my mistakes and the lessons they’ve taught me in the hopes that they may help others. Each of us face hardship spread over an infinite spectrum of variety and magnitude, but the choice to rise above our troubles is universal. We all have the power to thrive and be happy, but it does not happen by chance. You must fight for it. My words are just a representation of a determined struggle to realize my dreams. Read them, challenge them, take from them what applies to your life, but most importantly understand that you are not alone in this life! You deserve to be happy and it is within your power to make it so.
