Wait for better days

You will lose people, but do not lose yourself.

I don’t want to flee from life, I know the beauty of it... I’m trying not to be alone so much. And, man, it’s a struggle. I want to get married. I want to have kids. That’s at the top of the mountain. I’ve got to climb the mountain first. I’ll do it. Just give me some time.” - Keanu Reeves
