Love is so hard, even if it’s just love between family members. It’s so hard when times are tough and all you can do is try your best although you feel your best isn’t good enough. I feel like that every day.

Its been hard the last three years for my family, my mom has been on her deathbed many times and it’s terrifying when I know that I depend solely on her. Not only that, but she’s my best friend. And I have been taking care of her for two years. Thankfully, things are getting better.

I just have to remember that remaining strong is what I’m good at, and getting through tough things might as well be my very long middle name.
