Be strong; you can pull through

When life gives you a hundred reasons to break down and cry‚ show life that you have a thousand reasons to smile and laugh.

Life hasn’t been perfect‚ but I thank God for waking up to a brand new day each day. I have been pushed to the edge‚ but I didn’t let myself stay there for long.

There are times I wished things were different‚ little did I know that all that happened helped me become stronger and better.

I lost my parents when I was just twelve and I had a triplet to take care of: it was challenging as I didn’t know what to do or how I was going to stand up and be strong for them.

Money wasn’t the problem as my parents were very rich and we had household-live in workers.

I was sad and broken that my parents left and knew nothing or little about life.

I still needed them around and I was vulnerable same as my little siblings. At some point, my aunts tried to take over everything my parents as we were still minors‚ but it seems like they saw their death and each of us had a lawyer‚ so they backed off.

Each day it gets hard to breath; I couldn’t believe that my parents were gone and they died a painful death.

I was losing it and I didn’t know what to do or what to make out of whatever that has happened.

I needed to be strong if not for anything‚ but my siblings. I knew from now on henceforth I would be their parent sister and best friend‚ I didn’t want to let them down; that alone motivated me to be strong.
