Are You? Did You?
Are you smoking pot? are you drinking? Are you popping pills?
Are you breaking the law? Are you breaking your parents rules? Did you drop out of school? Are you living in treatments centers/ grouphomes? Are you cutting?
Did you get abused? Did your parents neglect you? Did you grow up in foster homes?
Did you try commit suicide?
If so.. you will get through it, it may take years, weeks, or days.
Just to change your ways.
It will be hard, there will be some bumps on the way to change.
but in the end it will be worth it.
If you make it to the top, you cant stop but if you drop, you got to get back up, and try again.
And also remember, everyone goes through struggles no matter who you are, or where your from, so you are NOT alone.
