Dear adversity

Dear adversity,

I'm writting you just to say thank you.

Thank for all my struggles.

Thank you for knocking me down so many times.

Thank you for showing me all the people I can actually count on when times get hard.

Thank you for tapping me on my shoulders when I think I've turned a major corner.

Thank you for showing me just how much more work I have to do.

Thank you.

Thank you for all the obsticles in my path.

Thank you for this burdomsone load I have to bear all alone.

Thank you for applying more pressure on me when I feel I've reached my breaking point.

Thank you for endowing me with titanium skin.

Thank you for forcing me to look deep within.

Thank you for showing me that complaining changes nothing.
Thank you for every door that ever slammed shut in my face.
Thank  you for showing me just how unfair and cruel life can be.

Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to prove you wrong over and over again.

Thank you for letting me see you for what you truly are.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Without you I would not have the motivation to not allow my heart to harden.
I don't have the insatiable need to win, but because of you I now have the courage to fail.

Thank you adversity.
