Just a few months ago, I was so lost. And by lost, I don’t just mean that I was unsure about my future. When I say lost, I mean losing myself, along with the four closest people I had in my life, all at once. And I guess I have the right to say that life was shit. Because it was. But as shitty as it was, there is nothing that I regret. And this is the reason why. As these few months have passed, I’ve grown and developed in ways that I would have never expected out of myself. And I’m extremely proud that I’ve gotten to this stage where I can stand tall and just be dependent on myself. Of course, I would have never been able to reach this goal without the support of my new and current friends that I’ve become closer with. And that doesn’t mean that I am happy every moment of my life. There are still days where I feel tired and worn out, but I have this confidence in myself that tells me “I will make it through”. And surely, I have made it through all these trials that I’ve had to face in the past couple of years. Losing a special one of my closest friends was definitely the most heartbreaking experience I’ve ever had to go through, and at times, it still breaks my heart. But I know that one day I’ll be able to meet with him again, and we’ll relive all our unforgettable memories. When I’m feeling down, I look up above and I imagine being able to see him. He is my inspiration to keep going. So no matter how much pain I have and will face, I will forever be grateful that I have met someone like him, and that he’s become such a big part of my life. And to all the people who have selfishly hurt me, I choose to start on my journey to forgiveness, but I will never forget. To all the people who still decide to hate on me for no good reason, I have only one piece of advice for you. Whatever you don’t let go of, will grow and infest in your heart like a disease, and one day it will kill you. The key to improvement is to let go and move on from the negative things in life. And so that is all. I pray that one day, you’ll realize all the things you’ve lost, but most importantly, that you will become a better person. It’s time to move on to the better things.
