What you need to understand about her is that even if the moment seems like it's going to break her, she will never be broken. She might not brag that often about the things that she's went through, but please believe she is a veteran at surviving.
None of us know how much time we have left on this earth. What is left in the end are our actions; the memories you left behind and how you made people feel. What you want to leave behind is people to remember you with love.
