Can You Cope?

Struggling isn’t weakness; it’s the strength to struggle at all.

One of the hardest things to do, is to get up after falling down. So many times I’ve beat myself up because I fell.

Yes, I screwed up college, but I went back again and again until I accomplished something—I fought.

Yes, I once sought comfort in self-destructive ways, but I fought my through it, screwing up many times in the process, until I finally kept my head above water.

Yes, I stopped working out, ate too much junk, and became depressed and empty, but I then managed to successfully diet, exercise, and lose plenty of weight, getting stronger in the process.

Yes, I wasted years of my life feeling like a monster, but then I found the courage to seek professional help and opened up to people who helped me realise I am no monster.

Point is, I’ve struggled and I will continue to struggle, but that doesn’t mean I gave up, it just means I’m still fighting.

Keep fighting, y’all.
