The Horrible Truth
I thought that if I just worked really hard and put my all into everything I did, I would eventually make my way to where I wanted to be in life.
The horrible truth I now realize is that sometimes, apparently for some people's situations, giving your best is not good enough.
I did try. With everything I had, in every situation. No matter what odds were stacked against me, I fought all the way. ...and it amounted to nothing.
I had no idea.
God, this hurts.
