Pain is unavoidable. Every stage of life will require pain,( including al the mistakes we make along the way) but yet I find it refreshing. My life has had some very uncomfortable, hurtful stages, but I always realize it is only preparation to reach the next step. In 2014, I have already been tested emotionally and mentally and I know there is more to come. My worries, my fears and my trials are important and I cherish them because they make me grateful for life. For all those who are suffering, just know that pain is the sign that you are overcoming and is only temporary.
