the state that i’m in now: My mother passed away.My boyfriend left me for another younger-talented girl.My father is diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.and i’m jobless.i don’t know what to feel anymore..

“The world is indeed full of peril and in it there are many dark places.
But still there is much that is fair. And though in all lands, love is now
mingled with grief, it still grows, perhaps, the greater.”

I’m really sorry about all the bad things happening for you at the minute. Let’s face it, nothing a stranger says is really going to help. So I’m not going to give an inspirational speech. Just know that many people have been where you are and survived. You will survive. As impossible and irritating as this advice is, try and feel hope.As disgustingly cheesy as it sounds I’ve learned that if you can keep even one ounce of hope about the future you’ll survive even the toughest situations.
