I Learned this Thing Today

The walls kept collapsing around me--it was a week where my ups weren't nearly as up as they should have been and my downs were really down. I was full of self-pity, self-doubt and nerves that should have killed me. Perseverance. Somewhere along the way, I learned this thing called perseverance and I surprised myself.

I never would have once thought I could be the type of person to keep going despite everything; in spite of everything. I stood my ground when I was wronged, and I made it through the rough times, even if I couldn't always genuinely smile through it.

I forget I can be strong. I forget I am strong--my crux is my constant self-doubt. It's been two weeks and I haven't had reason to fall apart. What a blessing.
