And some people think this is “cool”. I cant stress it enough and i hope i inspire people with my story to help their own and motivate them to do better. There are so many tears behind these walls, so much pain, so much anger. It will either make you or break you. It made me. God is great, and life is beautiful. Notice the small things, don’t take life for granted. Love life. Love your mother. I lost mine when i was away. You only get one, no matter how your relationship is just tell her you love her you may never know when you’ll hear it again.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
