Keep fighting

”There is only so much a person can take, before day break down, before they can’t get back up. There is only so much a person can take before they lose their hope.” That was what I thought, before I got back up. I thought I was never going to smile again, I thought that all hope was lost. I got back up; I got back up for the hundredth time. I had been bullied, I had been left alone, my parents were separated, my grandmother had cancer, and I had no friends. I was living on the outside but on the inside I was already dead.
Then something changed. I saw the light. The light was brighter than all the other times. “This is the last time I get back up” I promised myself that I would do anything, everything to stay up, to stay out of the darkness. I started surrounding myself with positivity. I was never going back down. I am never going back in that dark hole. I am never going to make the devil my master ever again.
I promise you, the light still exists. The hope is still there. No matter what you are going through, you will get through it. I promise you, and if you don’t find your way back, than put the blame on me. No matter what happens in my life I will continue to do what I love. I will continue to do the things that make me smile. I will continue to fight. I will continue to stay positive.
