“Some people survive and talk about it. Some people survive and go silent. Some people survive and create. Everyone deals with unimaginable pain in their own way, and everyone is entitled to that, without judgement. So the next time you look at someone’s life covetously, remember…you may not want to endure what they are enduring right now, at this moment, whilst they sit so quietly before you, looking like a calm ocean on a sunny day. Remember how vast the ocean’s boundaries are. Whilst somewhere the water is calm, in another place in the very same ocean, there is a colossal storm.”

We all are survival artists. We make it through each day of our lives no matter what nonsense we get up to and we go to sleep facing the next one whether we are ready or not. Everyone has their share of pain, some more than others tis true but like any art some of us are more talented than others and can do a lot more with what they are given. Please remember when things get tough and you don’t know how you’ll survive any longer, to look back and see what you have managed to come through so far and know that there is still more to come.
