This isn’t the life we deserve at all. We weren’t meant to be so scared of failure. To be so frightened of falling. We weren’t meant to live a life full of unchecked boxes. We weren’t meant to concentrate so much on what we are doing wrong, instead of what we are doing that’s right.
When I stop calling your name, when I stop praying, please don’t hate me for it, find ways to bring me closer to you again softly and gently.
You’ve already amounted to your full potential in that area and it’s time you move on. Congratulations.
You were carefully crafted and collected into the person that you are today. You are full of life, even if you don’t realize it. You are full of light, even if you don’t see it yet. And my dear, you are the most beautiful light that ever existed. So please, know that you were made to fly instead of fall. You were made to bloom instead of wilt. And you were made to shine, not to shrink.
During the best period of my life, what was going right for me?
“Find the things that bring you meaning. Suffering is always there in this world. But if you have meaning, you will have less despair. You will find your calling.”
I am still in school, I still rely on my parents, and I’m still constantly thinking, “Am I doing everything right?”
I slowly understand that mistakes are inevitable no matter how old you are, hell you might continue making the same mistakes over and over, but that’s the beauty of life, everyday is a chance for you to change, to improve or even learn.
We’re not lost, we’re just moving. We’re heading into a new direction, we’re rediscovering who we are in the wake of tragedy or change. We’re becoming. We’re growing. We’re moving along this crazy life path and one day it won’t feel like we’re stumbling around.
And though I am but one,
I am strong.
