Life is hard. It’s ugly. It’s unfair. It’s hurtful. It’s evil. It steals. It destroys. But when you take a closer look you see how wonderful it is. Underneath all the ugly is something beautiful. Life wasn’t meant to be easy. Somewhere along the way we’ve become brainwashed into thinking that a perfect life was achievable, but the truth of the matter is that’s impossible. The perfect life doesn’t exist in the real world. And that’s ok because if life was a breeze think of how shallow we all would be. There would be no emotion. Our relationships would be dry. We wouldn’t grow, we wouldn’t become stronger, we wouldn’t know how to persevere. There would be no way to build character. We’d just kind of exist. All of the good and the bad parts of life come together and create a beautiful, honest, vulnerable story.
