Look closely at your troubles. Don't let them cause you to give up! Befriend them and learn from them. Allow them to teach you what you want to know and move on. Try not to be afraid. You're a survivor. You're going to handle this. You're going to find strength that you didn't know you had, and grace to deal with whatever comes along. Then, when you're on the other side, you will look back on this time in your life and draw strength from the knowledge that even though the road was rocky, you persevered and carried on."
