It’s been a REALLY long time since I’ve blogged (both on here and my personal blog). Many of you don’t know me in real life; in fact, I imagine the majority of you don’t. But, here’s a quick update. I’ve always struggled with my personal life a lot. Since my last entry, I have gone on a difficult yet amazing journey. Within the past year, I’ve lost a lot of who I thought I was, and I’ve gained a humble sense of who I am today.
The truth is, we hold an imperfect view of ourselves within our minds, whether it is negative or positive. I recently read something about how we’ve never actually seen our physical appearance in person, only in reflections. It reminds me that that rings true in our personalities as well.
I digress, though. I’m delving into philosophical discussion now. I get distracted so easily. What I’m trying to get at, is that we all have unique journeys. We all have pain and joy, and hardship and victory. But, what makes us better people, is the ability to recognize that we’ve all been dealt different cards. Humility and acceptance were my saviors. I am who I am, past and all.
Life is what you will make of it. So, choose to make the best of it. Your struggles have made you into the person you are today. They should be pillars of strength, not the basis of a broken foundation. My advice today is to find peace within yourself. Find peace with your demons, and lay them down to rest. They’ll struggle to rise again, but you’re stronger than that. Your mental fortitude will be the beginning of your success.
