You all ask yourselves “why me?”, and you’re right to ask that, but to be honest there is no answer. You can’t stop what can’t be predicted, so stop blaming yourself for something you had no control over. Why are you still alive? Nobody knows, but you are and that’s the important thing. Not everyone can say that. You see those scars? There’s your proof. Regardless of the events that took place, you made it through. You still get to be there when your children grow up. You still get to feel the loving warmth of a hug or a kiss from your significant other even if you may not be able to see them. You need to understand that things happen in life that nobody can control, so now is the time to accept it. I know it’s easy to spend the rest of your life hating yourself, but what good is going to come out of doing that? Work with what you’ve got, instead of spending all your time working against it. Don’t give up. You just got handed your second chance. Make it worth it.
