Maybe somethings don't get better, but we do. We get stronger. We learn to live with our situations as messy and ugly as they are. We fix what we can and we adapt to what we can't. Maybe some of us will never fully be okay, but at least we're here. We're still trying. We're doing the best we can. That's worth celebrating too ❤

    Aife there amazing!!! The one on the right you could just say that it was scaring someone. 

    I haven't done any halloweenie like always 😛
    Some people think I am unhappy. I'm not. I just approach silence in the world that never stops talking.
