deep breaths

Have you ever been suffocated?

You start shoving, scratching and screaming to get out, but you don’t get anywhere because it just gets worse. You get pressed down further, and then one day you snap and all that shoving, scratching and screaming goes to waste.

You die. Inside.

Then everything becomes mellow, your look on life completely changes and you’re no longer living, you’re just existing.

I don’t want to just exist, I want to live. That’s why I’ll keep fighting until the day I break and, the day I break will be the day I die. I refuse to break, because I want to live and living means to fall over, get up, learn and repeat. I refuse to spend the rest of my life wallowing, regretting, avoiding like a coward because I don’t want to face up to my fears and problems.

As long as my heart beats, I’ll keep living.

– H.E
