If you can feel your spirit slowly dying, I implore you to make a change. A change of scenery, a change of friends, a change of music, whatever. Whether it’s online or in your community, seek out crazy, like-minded individuals who lift you up and not tear you down. Whatever it takes for you to keep chasing your dream, do it. Never give in, never give up, never surrender.
You may be in a valley right now; you're debilitated, destitute, disheartened and depressed. Yeah, I get it. I've been there. But slow down, close your eyes, relax your heart rate, calm your breathing, whisper a prayer and force yourself to press on...step by step. You'll make it, and when you get to the mountaintop, fill your lungs with the crisp, clean air. Take in the view, for it will be wholly worth it, my friend.
