Right now I have compassion for all those who feel deep disappointment about their life. Maybe you find yourself in a place you never imagined you’d be. Maybe you’re thinking, “Why me?” “How did I get HERE?!” “What happened?” Maybe you feel you’ve disappointed others. Maybe it’s mainly that you’ve disappointed yourself. That’s a very painful place to be, I know. I’m sorry you are feeling this.
The human journey is not for the faint of heart. No one knows your story fully. No one knows fully what it’s like to be you. No one has ever or could ever walk in your shoes. No one has the right to judge. No one can see what’s inside you. You’re still standing, aren’t you? To me, that makes you a hero. And guess what? You have 100% of the rest of your life left.
Consider this Day One of the rest of your life. This is about who you are inside. The world needs people who go through hell and don’t give up. Right now there are people looking for someone just like you – someone who has felt all that pain and disappointment but is still putting one foot in front of the other. Look, we all ask the “Why me?” question, and can feel like we’ve made a mess of our lives. Welcome to the club called Being Human.
We ALL screw up. What we need are people who don’t give up.
