Is there something in your life that you hold onto in the back of your mind? A past occurrence that pops in every-so-often and when it does, you feel the familiar sting of regret, guilt or blame? It’s a sign that it’s time to forgive yourself and move on. The next time it pops in, explore it with compassion and curiosity. Let what happened be a learning lesson that makes you stronger and wiser rather than a burden that keeps you stuck.
Yeah, because I was a decent person who had those thoughts--strive to be a decent person just because. We all see what that got me--a piece of shit cancer diagnosis. Who fucking cares about impact on the future now when having that concern didn't really matter to begin with?
Yup. It's called Respect. You shouldn't have to share or compete for your place. Give your all and then some, but if at any point it becomes one-sided? You have some serious decisions to make. Be wise.
