I hear from a lot of people that struggle with all these things, they're caught, they're drowning, they're folding under the weight of pain, and suffering, and misery and they ask me what I think. Well what I think is that you are better than that. You are better and you can triumph over these dark forces, you can become better, you can be better. But it takes courage and it's hard. But what is the other choice? What else can we do? Let the darkness completely consume us? No. Do not accept that. Remember what human beings are capable of suffering through, and remember that even in those situations, where everything seems to be taken away, when you seem to have no choice at all in the world, remember that you can still choose how you react to the things around you, you can still choose your attitude. It's our choice and we are responsible. We are responsible to be strong instead of weak, to become what we want to become, not what we let ourselves become. We own the course. You control the narrative. You write the story that you wanna write. And make your actions nothing short of heroic. As long as you don't surrender, as long as you don't give up, as long as you don't quit, you are not defeated. Unless you're dead, you are not defeated. And you have not failed. What you've done is you've learned. You've gained experience. And you're still alive. And you have memories to make. So get up, and go get after it.
