If you let life pass by, if you let all of these things get to you, and tear you down - then you will look back and realize you spent your life worrying about the things you cannot change, instead of the things you could have. Remember the things that keep us moving forward, that make us want to overcome all of these sad truths - Remember all of the things that make life worth the fight.
