Looking at myself in the mirror, my eyelids red from crying, my skin pale, my eyes tired.

I can’t help but think that this is what life is.

Life is fighting hard for things and dealing with the pain that comes from that.

Life is giving all you have, to someone, to something, to everyone or to everything.

You’re going to experience failure, defeat and disappointment because of it.

There’s going to be pain.

There are going to be nights you don’t think you’re going to live through.

But you do.

You get through it, and you keep fighting.

Never stop fighting, and never stop giving everything you have to all that you do.
