1. Seeing who will fight for you.
Forgiveness is very much a reckoning.
It means knowing that life is not happening to you, it is mirroring you.
If you want to change some part of your life, change the way you speak about other people who are already there.
Your life will not fall apart when you stop worrying, it will come together. Life is not happening to you, it’s a reflection of you.
This isn’t new. This isn’t novel. It’s just not the path of least resistance.
Most people do not want to be professional writers. They like the idea of being able to “do what they love,” and then when they have to write 5 articles a day on top of manuscripts and other projects, they suddenly don’t love it so much anymore.
It isn’t attraction that makes a relationship last. It isn’t common interests, a shared long-term vision, or even commitment.
If you are more afraid of your goals than you are inspired by them, you are not living up to your full potential.
In the words of Drake: the power of the mind is not a joke.
