The thought of inspiring people to change, helping someone overcome a difficult situation and having my own family one day.
Best advice you can give to someone looking for a decent life?
Do whatever the fuck you want. If people dont like it then find somewhere else to be. Thats what i do everyday. Don’t let the little things bother you. Stay strong, and stay positive. When you lose one thing, you gain another better. Don’t stress it, just smile. Wear your heart on your sleeve. Maybe nothing is working out right now, but maybe thats just a part of the puzzle pieces assembling into the picture that you deserve. People come and go, but you’ve always got you, so be thankful to be alive. Keep calm, shit happens.
