I'm still young, inexperienced and new to this world. I have to admit, I haven't had any "serious" hard times in my life before, just some minor ones that can be remedied easily. I am lucky enough and is grateful for that, but I have to prepare as I am not sure how long this "good life" will last. what keeps you going throughout hard times? what motivates you to rise again after plunging into the abyss? how does it feel to lose something big? share your experience and maybe not just me, but everyone can learn from your stories. to those who have gone through times of hardships and crises, I salute you and any close friends/relatives that helped you through, you are all fighters and I'm jealous of it.
