Somthing to talk about

I have experienced so much in my life so far. Far more than my grandmother believes that I should have. From deaths to sickness to family tribulations and bullying; I have seen it all. Why me, I ask myself? Why not me? I am surely convinced that what doesn't kill me will indeed make me stronger. From my grandfathers' cancer, to my mothers' strokes, and the cruelty of kids in middle school, I am still here to tell the whole world about it. Believe it or not, I wouldn't switch lives with anyone for all of the tea in China or all of the snow in Siberia. I am loved more than I could ever hope to be and I have a strong support system that is my family, friends and teachers. All of these tough times come and go but I know that there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. We all hit the curb sometimes, but we need to keep going. The past has made me into the strong, independent woman that I am today and that is something that I would never change. I am just ready for my next adventure, whatever that may be.
