"When the world says give up, hope whispers try one more time."
Go back to school. Get the degree. Believe it will work out. Try, try again. Believe good things will happen.
One thing that helped me through life is always having hope. Even as a little girl, there are situations in my life that I never stopped believing and hoping for. Things that most people would have long given up on. In my 20s I saw first hand what never giving up could do. It changes lives.
"I'm the crazy girl that feels bad for serial killers."
I'm a firm believer that as long as a person has breath, there is hope for them to change. I would never sit around and let someone take advantage of me, but I also would never give up on them. I would never stop hoping for a better future for them. I'm not naive. I've had so many experiences with life, with so many different types of people. Some that would make you want to walk away. Seeing the result when you don't walk away, when you don't lose hope in someone is so amazing.
