I learned that you just have to deal with the shit that life throws at you. The way I see it, suck it up and stay positive, or be sad all the damn time. No one likes pessimistic people.
Shit does happen and sometimes you can’t do anything to change it. But you can change the way you feel about it. I’m choosing to stay happy and optimistic as possible. It’s probably the only way I can make myself feel better, and also those around me. It is what it is.
