Months have passed by, and things surely have changed for Tina. No, life is not perfect for her (yet), But that little chat with Rita showed her that there was more to live. Not everything was over. Even when she thought she could get over it with no help, But telling Rita a little bit of the truth showed her that there's nothing wrong with asking for a little bit of help. Tina had to take a deep breath, and then, began looking for some professional advice. Opening up wasn't easy, but young Tina was lucky enough to find someone caring and understanding.
Yes, there were still some stormy and long nights, where bitter tears fell from her eyes, and her young heart aches with that same old pain.
But now, she is not afraid of the vicious storm. Little by little, she is working hard every single day to try to find the inner peace her heart longs for. This time, there is no need for her to drown her sorrows inside a can of cheap beer. This time there was no need of jumping from bed to bed. Everything she needed to face the future up, was inside her.
