My fear of death dissipated only after I came face to face with it.

After a series of events I looked at my life and thought that after 21 years (my age at the time) I had done absolutely nothing with my life worth any value.

I worked harder than any other student, tried my best to get ahead, even if just by a little bit, and grinded so hard only to still fail at the end.
