What you created before, it is painful when it is taken away. very very painful and it creates sad and depressing feelings.
But what you created in the pass, you can create again! Your an amazing person with an amazing potential, but it can be hard.

Do your best, your an amazing person, never forget that!

Greetings from somebody who also troubles his own family a lot.
