To live is to suffer, to survive is to find some meaning in the suffering.
Life does the most strange thing, it contributes to you a certain person that can either be the catalyst or saviour of your loneliness. Life can be unfair, there is much pain and sorrow that leaves any human spirit broken. But we would all be lying; yes life does take, it takes a lot. But then it has also given, given you everything you could ask for. Freedom, love and friendship.
