Someone once told us that we don’t have to be a superhero to be brave, we just have to get up every morning and be ourselves.
All we had was each other. All we had was the foundation of friendship we worked so hard to create.
Let’s take a moment this New Year’s to really think about who and what we’ve gotten to see and experience each day, each week, and each month in the past year.
So, what is it that us ‘good men’ have a fear of? Silly things, probably. The fear of not being liked, maybe, or the fear of being made fun of and derided. The fear of being excluded, the fear of being fired, or possibly even just the fear of speaking.
Make sure to put yourself and the way you’re feeling down as often as possible. Remind yourself that you’re worthless and inconsequential to society despite all the evidence to the contrary.
There’s no escaping it. There’s only trying to remember it’s temporary, that you’re not alone, and that there will be a time when days like this will have given you the perspective needed to keep your kid from shipping himself off to Australia simply because he had a bad day.
1. Your Dreams
I’m really good at knowing how to make other people happy and feel good about themselves but really hopeless when it comes to knowing how to make ourselves happy and feel good about ourselves.
But if I look at every road as a bridge then I’ll never get home. I love this job and I respect this job because, for me, right now, it’s home.
