It Gets Better

I know how others see you. I know how you see yourself. Each step you take out of the morass is a victory. Be brave, little monster; take my hand and rise up.

This post was made in response to the Trifecta Writing Challenge weekend prompt, in which the editors gave us this assignment:

Give us the 33 words that follow this illustration.  What happens next?
