You know in your soul that lakes truly are superior to the ocean.
You got SUPER territorial if your parent was paying attention to another child.
Just because you aren’t where you thought you would end up, doesn’t mean that you’ve failed at achieving your dream.
Luckily, I’ve found a way to pay everything off without accidentally accumulating a plethora of late fees, and I’ve also figured out how to treat myself while keeping a budget.
I am glad you have learned to let go of your fears and embrace pain for what it is.
In my mind, being in my 20’s meant independence and freedom for myself. I would be out in the real world by now, living on my own and learning how to make it for myself.
Saying yes to too many things, and then having to pick and choose when you realize you’ve taken on too much.
Self-acceptance is the new kale, and although it’s just as good for you, it’s really uncomfortable. The books and TEDTalks preach mindfulness and compassion, but they gloss over the parts of the process that are more a slap in the face than meditative.
No matter what I may deal with in life, I’ll wake up feeling complete, my soul satisfied because you in my life will always inspire me to rise to my full potential.
Over time, I finally accepted that I am not a failure – everything I was a learning experience. My road bumps were lessons.
