You start off small, you are nothing
New territory, new experiences, new chapter of life
Feeling empty and alone, but you are not
All that hard work paying off
Progression and changes
Comfort and confidence
Top of the world and nothing bringing you down
You're invincible
The only thing that can defeat you is yourself
And you succeed
Slipping, falling, rolling
The crash ends
So much hope is lost
Nobody believes in you
Disappointment and sadness
You are nothing
The stage is set
Definition comes from reaction



We have all felt this rollercoaster in some way. Sadly, it affects some of us harder than others. Character is the definition of a person, and is always about reactions to situations.
