Sometimes the bad things that happen to us overwhelm us.
It makes all the little terrible things seem like things that end us, things that drag you in slowly and melt you away until there is nothing left of us.
It taints everything you see, to where you think that everything you have done amounts to nothing, and no matter how much you struggle, it will always win.
But it won't.
As long as we breathe, we will live to fight another day.
