Everyday is a challenge for everyone, and most are never easy. Sometimes, we fight the battles around and inside us.
It may take days, months, or years even for it to finally end. With one battle won, another will always take it's place.
With every experience good or bad, we grow and learn more about who we are.
Whatever comes your way, know that you have the strength to over come it.
You have the power to over come any obstacle, to reach any goal that you set your energy towards.
No matter how many times you mess up, whenever you are at your lowest, be strong.
We maybe human, but we are stronger than we give ourselves credit for.
I have made many mistakes, and am sure I will make many more in the future.
But I do not let the bad things in my life define me as a person.
I learn from my mistakes and misadventures, take it to heart, and make a difference in the present, for the future.
There will be times where you will be alone, but remember, only you can decide to take action.
Muster the strength to become a better stronger you.
It may take years, or even decades, but the progress is it's own reward.
You will see it in you, and around you. The changes are your living proof, that you have become what you wanted to be.
So stay that better person, whatever may come your way, stay that better person you want to be.
For yourself, for what makes you happy, and what you hold close to your heart.
I am writing this for anyone out there feeling unsure about themselves as a person.
What you want to be in the near future, where you see yourself.
I hope these words help anyone out there feeling lost in their lives right now.
I wish nothing but the best for people, even my enemies.
Because in the end, we are all struggling with something.
My name is Jonathan Franks, and I am typing this Journal entry for myself and anyone needing guidance.
A perspective for people in this era to see through, to encourage them to make a life for themselves.
I wont lie to you that I am not scared of moving on my own, but I am eager as well to see where this road to independent living may lead.
I hope that myself in the future sees this and remembers why I wrote this.
Remembers that he is human, and that we can start again and again.
We can reach our goals, and we can "do this".
Remember to be better than the ones who look down on us.
We must be better, we must.
