All the emotional stress you have been through. All the neglect and depression that was squeezing your thoughts leading you to the path of insufferable madness. All the nights you did not sleep. All the days you did not live. All the rhythms you did not enjoy. All the paths you did not take. All the mysteries you did not know how to resolve. All the expectations you did not meet. All the people who let you down…
All that makes me wonder…
How do you manage getting through the day without giving up?
How do you manage drawing a smile on your face, swallowing the pain, and whispering in the ears of your beloved ones: ‘Everything is going to be okay.’
How do you manage being yourself in a place where everything is pushing you to be all that you are not?
How do you manage being unstoppable when every concern and worry is giving you a reason to stop?
How do you manage filling your empty soul with happy songs?
How do you manage being perfect with all those imperfections and judgments surrounding you?
How do you manage freeing your heart from hatred to all those who gave you a million reason to hate them?
How do you manage making the best of everything you have, even though you have so little?
How do you manage inspiring other people when you have no one to look up to?
How do you manage making us realize that because you survived what you have been through, we can too.
I once read a quote that said ‘Don’t put the keys of your happiness in someone else’s pocket.’
I believed in it, until I met you…
You took the keys of your happiness and put them in everyone’s pockets because you deeply knew that their happiness is yours.
You always figure out a way to make us smile.
You always figure out a way to make us believe that, no matter what it is we are going through, we can handle it.
You always figure out a way to move forward when every force pushes you to the other direction.
How do you manage to do it?
How do you manage to survive?
How do you manage to be happy?
How to you manage to inspire?
How do you manage to smile?
How do you manage to make every manipulated behavior motivate you?
How do you manage to excel in what you do without having to compete in it?
How do you manage to choose self esteem over self pity?
How do you manage to listen to your inner voice when other’s gossip starts to turn you deaf?
How do you do it?
Please, I beg you…
Do teach me your magic.
