People go through a lot of crap in their lives in their path to destiny... or success... or happiness... whatever you may call it. Hell people go through crap outside of this path, in their day-to-day lives. If you don't want to get sucked in to this maelstrom and get depressed and wallow in self-pity (and by you I mean me too), the only thing to get by everyday is to step back and look at the big picture. And in the meanwhile look at the small but good things in life. Life is a hell-hole that can bring you down to your knees every day if you let it - it is up to you to find some reason to stand up again and jump to reach for the skies every time after you've taken a fall. I am reminded of the line from the movie 'The Matrix Revolutions' (in spite of the movie being a let-down in hindsight) :

Agent Smith: It's pointless to keep fighting. Why, Mr. Anderson? Why? Why do you persist?
Neo: Because I choose to.

As humans we choose to fight back everyday - some people immediately rebound from their failures, some take a little while to lick their wounds, some wallow a little longer in depression. Unless you literally give up on your life and and sail into the afterworld, it means you are still fighting back.

So fight back, man. Sh*t happens - there's no use getting depressed about something you can't change. Fight for what you still can - your destiny. It is coming.

"God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference."
