why it’s worth it

why it’s worth it

In life, you will realize there is a role
for everyone you meet. Some will test you,
some will use you, some will love you and
some will teach you. But the ones who are truly important
are the ones that bring out the best in you.
They are the rare and amazing people
who remind you why it’s worth it. -Buddha
