People always think about the mistakes they've made, the people they've hurt, the lies they've told, and the other past sins in their life. They look at them, put their heads in their hands, sob, and wonder to themselves 'how did I become such an awful person? Why don't I just die, or something?' Those people are forgetting something though... things change. People do change. Things can be made better, and wounds healed.

No matter who you were, you don't always have to be that person. A person is defined not by the mistakes of his past, but rather how he reacts to those mistakes. We're all human, and we all are going to **** up terribly at one point or another. And perhaps we'll **** up so bad, things may never seem to be able to get better... or at least back to the way things were.

So be it. Humans are made to adapt, that's why we're such fascinating creatures. We evolve, change, and adapt at the blink of an eye.

And sometimes its not our fault. Sometimes fate simply gives us a ****** hand. Sometimes the gods simply decide we're the entertainment for the day, and so rain bad luck down on us like evil hail. Sometimes you simply cannot help what happens, but that doesn't mean luck such as that can rule you. You're still you. You're still able to think, to reflect, and to react. And how you react is what people will remember you for.

So stop brooding. Stop dwelling. If you wish to be the person you want to be, its time you've picked yourself up, dusted yourself off, and kept walking. Time heals wounds, yes, but if Time were to pass you while you lied groaning on the street, it would not offer you a hand to stand. It would simply walk on. And while any human may stop to offer you a stick to lean on... no man can pick you up. That's up to you. So take the stick, pick yourself up, and march on.

Do that, and they'll march behind you with heads held high.
