As much as I miss having my dad around, I think of his death as a blessing in disguise. After he died I grew up really quickly. I took up roles and responsibilities not many 21 year old have to deal with. I’m a lot wiser and stronger because of it.
In the last two year I’ve learnt a lot about humanity and people in general. I travelled the world and I’ve learnt and been in contact with so many different individual who continue surprise me every day. But one of the biggest things I’ve learnt since my dad’s death is that everyone is fighting an internal battle. Some battles are really dark and others aren’t. They can all be overcome. I’m living proof of that. The notion that you never know what someone is going through till you walk a mile in their shoes rings true in all cases. In this day and age I hope we don’t lose humanity and I hope that everyone reaches out to anyone in need if advice or help. There is nothing worst then struggling to cope and feeling alone.
