loss stays with you for your entire life. it can heal, and you’ll be fine, you’ll be better for it, but you’ll always remember it. and the temptation to give in is always going to be there, it’ll always pull you back. that’s why you gotta stay strong, because you survive one day, you can survive more. and you can keep going, and you can keep living. even if it can’t seem like you will.” ––– xx.
