      Should I condense it to the bottom part?
      Because the bottom part can exist on its own.

    I included my own personal story
    As a sort of allegory as to how I
    personally see how one should
    Live one's own life.

    Don't ever try to hide from pain.

    Pain is inevitable;
    it cannot be avoided
    because life is full of it.

    Instead,
    you must work through pain.

    When the going gets tough,
    and when life knocks you down
    with a barrage of attacks,
    make sure that you give
    as good as you receive.

    Don't ever give up,
    no matter how much it hurts.

    Because the rewards are so goddamn satisfying,
    and if there's anything that I have learned
    in the short amount of time I have been
    revolving around the sun, it is that
    it doesn't matter how many times you fall.

    What matters is how many times you get back up.

    I know that the fight towards adversities
    is often quite imposing,
    and sometimes discouraging,
    but so long as you can
    take a hit and throw it back,
    I know that you can fight the fight.

    So go get em, Tiger.

    Totally loved this story dude,

    I've trained in 3 forms of martial arts although I stopped doing about eight years ago, kinda miss it but life gets in the way.

    As for the other aspect of your story you have my total respect.
