A path without peaks, valleys, winding roads, or without starts and stops that require you to pivot isn’t a life worth living. Indirect and crooked paths that require us to deviate from our projected paths solidify our mental fortitude and increase our stamina, self-confidence, and self-love.
And it’s sad to see others so unfulfilled, so scared and lonely, searching for something outside of themselves that would make them feel better. Not knowing or recognizing that all they need is located within.
We romanticize the past. We romanticize the fun moments, the amazing experiences and the people we’ve experienced those experiences with without really focusing on the dark spots of the past.
