One of the things that has helped me deal with the recent “changes” in my life was that I stopped to realize that I am not the only one to go through some sort of hardship or trauma. People have been through things in the past, will continue to do so in the present, and will also go through it in the future.
That’s life. A series of ups and downs. It’s how you deal with it. We are all individuals, we’re all different, but yet we are all similar in a lot of ways. Realize that you are not alone. Realize that you have what it takes to right any wrongs, and to move forward. You will heal. You will find your place.
So life didn’t turn out the way you expected. You made mistakes. So what? Nobody’s perfect. Stand up and be the best you that you can be. Don’t worry about anyone else. Am I saying to alienate others for your advancement? Of course not. Focus on you. Focus on the positive, surrounding yourself with it. Can’t hurt, right?
