The Truth Is Life Is Always With You

Life is a lesson. You learn every step of the way sometimes holding hands, sometimes all alone by yourself.

You fall. You get hurt. There are wounds. There are scars. Dreams get shattered, and truths become lies. Promises are made but never kept.

What you hold onto, what you think will always be, is never ever quite the same.

Still, every step of the way, you get up, stand through it all and live your life.

It doesn’t take much to give up, but it takes a lot to keep yourself going. You have to face it if you want to live.

Even then, life is always with you when everyone else might not be. It’s what keeps you going.

All that matters is what you have now anyway. The past is behind you. The future is far ahead. You only have this present moment. Live it like nothing else matters.

You don’t need the mirror to live. You don’t need the reflection to tell you how to live. You have it all in your heart to be who you want be and live your life the way you want to.

Look into your heart, listen and ask yourself what you really want. You can live how others want you to, or you can live the way you want to. The power is in your hands. You always had it in you.

It’s up to you to choose your way and show the world what you have in your heart. Open up your heart, and show them the stars that couldn’t be seen, because no one else looked close enough, but you knew and saw life for what it was.

Show the world there is truth and beauty, because life is with you in your heart. It was always there showing you the way. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
