Cheers to the pain
that haunted our past.

Cheers to those who
put our hearts in a cast.

Cheers to the tears
that fell down our faces.

Cheers to our mistakes,
that led us in different places.

Were it not for them, we wouldn’t be here.
So cheers to you, for facing your fear.

Cheers to you, for staying strong,
and may these words help you carry on.

About Clarissa

I'm Clarissa--a self proclaimed geek therapist from Texas! Inspired by fellow therapists with nerdy interests, I want to contribute my own insight and passion of anime, fandom and other categories of pop culture by applying themes into the real world for us to implement in our own lives. Let's channel Luffy's fearlessness and positivity! Be the Deku that does their best! Let's open the discussion about anime and mental health together!

    Words of wisdom for life. I may read this out loud and toast with a Guinness. If anyone else is there, I’ll give you all credit. All right with you?
