I Will Stay Strong

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 158 People

    Staying Strong is not cutting yourself.

    It's not doing that one thing that is making you weak. It's loving yourself when it's hard. It's baring through pain that is almost unbearable. Stay strong. And live on

    It doesn't matter if you know how much you mean

    to me anymore, all that matters is you're happy. I will stay strong and move on, with the short-lived happy moments we once shared... in my heart.
