Throughout my life I've felt invisible. Never the one who gets attention and never the one to feel loved by anyone.
I graduated university with high Mark's and to be honest the people who I thought would forget and wouldn't care were the ones who gave me the most attention.
My grandma who has hated me her whole life got me a cake and cards.
My father who neglected me my whole life hugged me and said he was proud .
My mother who has been through SO much cried on my shoulder and let me know how proud she was.
My cousins and family who made fun of me being different congratulated me, gave me gifts, cards and wishes in a successful future.
Fair to say I cried. I have NEVER felt this much love in my life. Not even on my birthday. I'm so happy right now and this is the first time I've been happy in months.
I struggled so hard with this degree and to see this much love going into congratulating me and seeing how much they saw me struggle was definitely worth it. I now have a successful job which I'll be starting soon.
You can get through any hardships If you try hard. I did and it paid off in the end. No matter how many times everyone says try harder, you do just that because you can try harder. And everything will work out at the end. These struggles only last until you yourself mentally can convince yourself that you can do it.
I know how cliche it sounds but seriously, do it and prove to the people who doubted you that you are better than them.
