No one will pick you up if you don’t! 

There are times in life when we mess up and feel that we need help.

Most of the time we refuse to ask for this help, we are stubborn and we want to prove that we are strong and that we do not let ourselves be defeated, that we are strong, that we can overcome anything. 

Sometimes when we realize we need help and agree to ask for it, we realize there is no one to help us.

And, unfortunately, it happens that the person we asked for support to not know how/want to help us.  

So… Keep your head up and smile. No one will pick you up if you don’t! They all have their lives, their problems, their plans.

Most of them will turn their backs on you no matter how much you have helped them in the past. 

They only care about themselves and their own good. No sense in telling you now – I don’t wanna ruin the surprise.

This is how life is. That’s how people are. And you can’t change them, no matter how much you want it sometimes.

So smile! Enjoy life! Show them to those who did not want to help that you managed on your own, that you will do it whenever it takes.

 Show them that you are strong and do not let yourself down easily.

Show them that you are more than they thought and that you go on with your head up knowing that you have succeeded.

It may not have been easy for you, but it doesn’t matter. That’s how you became strong. 

And strong people have a special beauty in their soul that is highly valued by those who can see it.

There are not many people like this, but it is not the quantity that matters, but their quality.
