"once upon a time, there was a little girl that was so innocent. She never had one trouble in the world and lived each day to the fullest. she was happy, and appreciated everything and everyone around her. she grew up, and realized that life isn't always the brightest. People die, leave you, stab you in the back, and stop caring about you. she became cold-hearted. she protected herself from everything so she wouldn't get hurt. after awhile, she stopped feeling; stopped feeling and caring about everything around her. over time though, she came to realize that it's okay to be hurt, it's okay to fall down sometimes, and it's okay to have people let you down once in a while. The hardships in life are what make you stronger. Without them, you'd be nothing. From then on, she was the bravest and most courageous girl you have ever met. "
