Every time I feel like drowning I just think of all the things I have in life.

I try to be happy, but I don’t know what true happiness is.

I have to remember that I have a family and a future ahead of me.

I must stay strong, keep both feet on the ground ready to run.

I can do it! I can work through it!

Just take everything day by day.
