pretty much my life motto.
it’s the lack of apologizing together with having a comfort and trust that it’s okay to feel every emotion deeply and convey that to others simply because that ability is a part of you and something that you have to accept that you need.

I believe that we need to constantly challenge ourselves and let our passions act as our guide. Life is a constant struggle but if you are prepared for the unexpected you will be in a much better position to react.
