You are not falling behind—you are falling into yourself
You do not always have to be fire, do not always have to burn those who come too close. Remember— you are seventy percent water; you have it within you to be soft.
The truth is, you’re not always going to be a good person. You’re going to mess up. We all do. It’s when you use those mistakes. And we dwell on other perspectives of our faults, and we recreate the mistake. Owning is a lesson and making a different outcome, that’s the real secret.
One day, you’re going to see how they never defined you, they only ever helped you to define yourself. Be brave enough to heal yourself even when it hurts. At the end of the day, all that you have lost is all that you have gained.
