It's Going to Be Okay

Hello Vingle Fam-

I know a lot of you are dealing with some heavy, difficult things right now. I just wanted to say you are loved and supported and I'm here for you. Whether we speak every day or have not once personally interacted, you are part of my Vingle family and as such I want you to know you are not alone.
Every struggle is different and we are each facing our own battle. As crushing as it may seem, it will get better. There is a rainbow in the storm, we just have to find it.
So to help you though the darkness, I decided to share with you a couple things that have helped me though some of my hardest moments.


After a while
You learn the subtle difference between holding a hand
and chaining a soul.
And you learn that love doesn't mean leaning
and company doesn't mean security.
And you begin to learn that kisses aren't contracts
and presents aren't promises.
And you begin to accept your defeats with your head up
and your eyes open,
with the grace of an adult,
not the grief of a child,
And you learn to build all your roads on today
because tomorrow's ground is too uncertain for plans.
After a while you learn that even sunshine burns if you get too much.
So plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to
bring you flowers.
And you learn that you really can endure...
That you really are strong,
And you really do have worth.
This poem was written by Veronica A. Shoffstall, at age 19. I found this poem in middle school in a book called Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul.
I was given this book when I was in the hospital during one of the most difficult battles of my life. This poem has stuck with me ever since. I don't remember a single thing from that book aside from this poignant piece. I often go back and read it when I'm down and facing difficult times.
This song is called It's Okay by BTOB. I used a lyric video so you can listen to the song and understand the meaning behind it. This song is beautiful and has a powerful message; IT'S GOING TO BE OKAY.

I hope at least on of you found some comfort in the idea behind this card. Please just know that you are not alone. You are loved. You are special. You are wonderful.

And you have a community here of people who support you and care about you and we're here to help you though. Saranghae!

Sending hugs to every member of the Vingle community, but in particular I'm sending hugs to @JiyongLeo @AimeeH @StefaniTre @CuteBabyLay @BBxGD I love you all.
Please feel free to add your taglists or even just to tag anyone who you think might be in need of some encouragement.

Well this just reduced to me to tears. I've been dealing with a lot of struggles and stress and have been feeling very down lately so your card couldn't have come at a better time.
