Life is weird. It will give you sadness served on dirty plate, and days when it takes you two days to get out of bed. It will replace your shadow with the ghosts of who you use to be, and they will follow you around, whispering the past into your ear. It might even throw in a dark cloud on a sunny day that will turn everything upside, just for good measure. Life will give you heartbreak, a lot of it, and maybe a few unrequited loves, and too many days with a heavy heart and drenched eyes. Sometimes, it will lead you down the wrong path that will require you to trek through storms to get back to the right one. It will abandon you with your thoughts that tell you that the monster doesn’t live under the bed, instead, it lives in the mirror. Life will give you tragedies, and total chaos, and tears. But it will also give you the chance to meet a few good people who will turn into friends that will lie on the floor of a public bathroom with you while you contemplate why you decided to drink so much that night. It will give you someone who will answer your calls at four o’clock in the morning, and hold your hand even if it’s sweaty as hell. It will blow soft winds through your hair and give you a chance to hear the leaves rustle. Life will give you a car, some good company and a long road, it will scatter the stars across the dark, blue sky and give you something to believe in. It will also give you books and music, words written by strangers so that you know that you’re never truly alone. Every day it will give you a different sunrise and a different sunset, and a chance for you to witness the beauty of it all. Life will give you experience, a lot of it, and you will learn and grow and bloom. It will give you a hundred reasons to go, but a thousand reasons to stay. So stay.
