don't know if this belongs here, but a friend of mine wrote this and i thought it was pretty cool. Everyone will get cuts and bruises throughout life. Sometimes it could be obvious, like when you scraped your knees by falling off your bike, of after you got hurt in p.e. class, or running into something or someone you didn't see at that moment. But sometimes, the scars aren't as obvious, like when you're going through a break up with a love one or a good friend, or losing someone that meant so much to your life, or being told something or treated someway that just pushes you over the edge. Either way, these cuts and bruises are inevitable. It's something that everyone has to endure. Sometimes you will have someone by your side every step of the way and not leaving your side for even a second because they want to be there for you. But there will be a few times where there won't be someone for you and you'll have to get through it by yourself. There aren't enough people in this world to please everyone and meet everyone's needs, there will always be someone left out; life's unfair that way. And it's at these times where you feel like it's the end of the world, but this is also the time where you have to hold your head up high and continue on. In the end, no matter how deep these cuts are, how many marks these bruises leave, how many scars are left after your life battles, how hurt you are at the end of all this, not everyone will know the pain you're going through, and not everyone can see it. But it's also at these times where it becomes obvious who cares and who wouldn't give a damn: who you can trust and who are the backstabbers. No one is strong forever. Everyone as their time of need; their moment of weakness. Showing this doesn't mean you're oversensitive, or is a wuss, it just means you're human. This is the moment where you have to learn to trust, even if it seems to be the most impossible task ever. But no matter what, in the end, it depends on you to let them in or keep them out.
