A really good friend of mine was having a really difficult time. I tried so hard to be there and help at every turn.
We were talking about growing through the hard times — if you let the hardest seasons of life teach you something, you come out the other side having grown stronger. As hard as it feels when you’re in it, you become a better person once you’re through it.
I really wanted to make this card so that it would be out there in the world for those times when someone needs to hear it.
Plus, I believe that hearing these kinds of things when you are young make the growth easier. It’s important to learn that life won’t always go perfectly — but that the imperfect moments are just as important as the perfect ones.
