“What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, stand a little taller...”
You are stronger than you feel, I promise. Life is going to knock you down from time to time. Sometimes it is for the best, because those horrible times are what makes you a stronger person. I am speaking from personal experience because some days I just want to crawl under a rock. Meaning that I am extra hard on myself about grades, friendships, and how I look in the mirror. Then, I realized that I am stronger than I even know. Sometimes we try to block out the world because of stress, overwhelming situations etc. I am telling you to believe in yourself and do not block out the ones who truly believe in you.
Those bad situations are the ones that made us so strong. For example if you loose a best friend to a terrible argument, that only makes you stronger in handling bad days. You have to have those awful times to get to the most wonderful times in your life.
Now I relate my life to Pretty Little Liars, a lot, because I have watched every single episodes once and some multiple times.
Warning if you have not watched the show and want to, I recommend you stream Netflix like immediately. These 11 times that the Pretty Little Liars have stayed strong even on the bad days, could be spoilers if you want to still get on board for the Pretty Little Liars Army.
1. When Caleb broke up with Hanna back in season three, trying to protect each other.
Hanna was down for a couple of days, where she listened to sad music and wore sweats all the time. Then she realized that if it was meant to be, it would be okay.

12. Flash five years forward, and the girls are called back to Rosewood.
The past stays with us. The girls stick together, even though they are grown up, they will always be there for each other.
Pretty Little Liars shows us all that bad situations make you stronger every time. Also, that you do not have to be so hard on yourself because you are stronger than you even know sometimes.
