Life is a journey, nothing happens if you don’t step forward. 

As the last year of my teenage chapter closed, I had to really learn what it meant to accept change. I lost some close friends, I moved a lot, my life turned upside down a few times, but I learned how to keep going.

I learned you have to be vulnerable and raw, or settle for being a fake. I learned that love hurts, but self preservation is never quite worth the pointlessness it provides. 

It’s time to live.
