Sometimes when we’re in school, things can get a bit overwhelming; between classes, social life, extracurricular activities and just trying to get things done, for some, it may feel like you can barely breathe.
But, it’s important to know that at some point in life, everyone has felt that way, and even the most successful people, those that we admire and look up to, have also had moments when they thought they couldn’t make it.
In these moments, some very famous, and also not so famous people, came up with ways to describe what they were feeling, and how they were able to find the motivation to keep going and they had the wisdom to share it with the world.
