I once heard that there are 2 ways to approach the path to finding the significant other you spend your life with. 1) You can have many loves, and only one soul mate; 2) You can have many soul mates, and only one love. I believe, based on my experiences so far, my path will be the latter.
Absolutely. Be strong. We've come to some large hurdles but gotten through them ALL. Never let anyone make you feel like you have to give up. Stay strong and push through it with a smile on your face. That will piss them off and only make you stronger! ;-)
