  • I remember the night we cried. The night I wanted to run away from life. I wanted nothing more but to disappear. I couldn't make it through another day, but you were there. You understood. You held my hand and whispered four words that changed my life. This too shall pass. Your voice still rings clear.

    No matter how bad things get, things will always get better. For that moment, reality hit. Those four small words changed my life for good.

    The tears stopped, and the room went silent. Somewhere deep down I knew that everything would be okay. For a split second I felt invincible, and that nothing would ever hurt me again.
