Life is scary.
One day you wake up feeling like you can take over the world, and the next day you wake up feeling like all you want to do is lay in bed and hide from everything.
People walk into your life, grab your hand, and lead you into the most beautiful path you've known, yet sometimes the same people let go of your hand with no warning, and you become stranded at a place where you never thought you would feel lost.
Let's be honest, sometimes everything is going so great and it seems like nothing could go wrong, but right when you begin to think that, something so horrible comes crashing down and all of a sudden more problems come riocheting around you and you just feel so hopeless because it feels so bad... so frickin, (excuse my language), shitty!
It's so hard to understand why such things happen in life, and I personally wish I had an answer to that "why" you always ask yourself, but all I can say is that no matter how hard life gets... you have to keep going. 
The life around you will never stop going on. I'll be honest and say that, that sometimes makes me feel a little bit worried, and it gives me anxiety because all I can think is "will I be able to keep up? What if everything goes too fast?" But I realized that being scared and living with that burden of running away from problems only slows me down even more. And I've come to the point where I believe that because life never stops, I shouldn't stop either. It's okay to take breaks and to give yourself time to heal, but you cannot give up and you cannot quit. There is so much waiting for us to do and we simply can't give fear the satisfaction of winning when we can give success, growth, and accomplishment the same satisfaction, if not even more.
Please believe in yourself and encourage yourself instead of doubting yourself. Keep it positive, fill your heart with gratitude for what you already have, and always remain humble and true to who you are.
 
Because even if life is hella scary.... not living it is scarier.
