The Struggle

Mon, 07/15/2013 - 01:37 -- ekyoon


The reason you exist, is because you were the first sperm to reach the egg.

The reason you were born, is because you fought your way out of your mother’s womb.

The reason you survived your youth, is because you managed to pity your bullies and your abusers.

The reason you are in college, is because you worked your ass off to be better than those around you.

The reason you are still alive, is because you have always overcome everything life has thrown at you.

The reason you will continue to survive, is because your life has built you up to be able to endure.

And although life is a constant struggle,

The reason you will be happy, is because you have learned to overcome the struggle and look beyond it.
