When you just can't shake the heavy weight of living..

People say sticks and stones may break your bones, but names can never hurt you, but that’s not true. Words can hurt. They hurt me. Things we said to me that I still haven’t forgotten. I learned that you go through things, you deal with them, and that is what empowers you and ultimately makes you a happy person. Do I think I still need work? I think everyone needs work. I just keep working on myself. We can’t control all in life… but what we CAN do is look ahead and dictate where we go next.
