I know now that life is hard, but you can make it through with the right people.

You know, Astral, that's a pretty good lesson at any age. Surround yourself with people who care about your feelings. Lose the ones that only care about their own feelings. thenewgreen -- I think you'll be impressed with 14-year-old Astral's comment.

It's funny, I was just about to respond very similarly. So much of life is who you surround yourself with. Increasingly as you get older you'll have more say in this. Surround yourself with negative people and the world will seemingly suck. Surround yourself with thoughtful and active people and the world will be your oyster as they say. Good luck Astral, glad to have you in our ranks.
