There will always be an antagonist in the story. Whether this is a thing, a person, a place or an idea, you will see it. Glaring at you as you breathe and exist, testing your waters and deciding against them. This does not invalidate the beauty of your human and your spirit. I mean, we’re all just trying to live our life with a reason to be worth it. The antagonist might say, “prove your worth”. I say, “watch and learn.”, not that there is anything to prove. I’m working with what I have, trying to gain more to do more. And who is the judge? God gives you what you can handle, and with creativity that can be anything I need it to be.
