Okay, okay, this might be somewhat of a rant. So my bad, just need to put it out there.
We’ve all lost battles, but never the war. It just bothers me that some people are cowards and never want to own up to their actions or responsibilities. This can be people in and out of the water.
But I’m talking about people in general, surfer or not. Be grateful you’re alive. It’s never over unless you throw in the towel. I guess that’s one thing I like about surfing, it’s a passion and gives you something to look forward to when you’re having a rough day.
Recently, I’ve seen some loved ones throw it all away. Not sure why they decided to end it… It’s a damn shame. If you’re still breathing, there’s always a chance.
If you don’t like who you are today, you can change tomorrow. Better yet, you can change now. You can make better decisions. You can always make a difference in someone else’s life or your own, starting now.
Whatever hardship I go through, I know I’ll make it back in the water.
If you know anyone that is suicidal, please help them. A simple conversation can make a big difference.
