No matter what happens, no matter how far you seem to be away from where you want to be, never stop believing that you will somehow make it. Have an unrelenting belief that things will work out, that the long road has a purpose, that the things that you desire may not happen today, but they will happen. Continue to persist and persevere.
"people think a soulmate is your perfect fit; and that's what everyone wants. but a true soulmate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your own life."
