You get to be yourself.

Well, if it makes you feel any better...

Have you ever told someone about something bad or difficult that you are going through and without skipping a beat, they say, "Well, if it makes you feel any better..." and then tell you something really awful that their neighbor or cousin or someone else is going through?

The short answer is, "No!" it doesn't make you feel better at all.

They're trying to make you appreciate what you have by telling you about someone else who has worse things going on but their method is flawed.

You get through your pain with help and encouragement, not by having it dismissed as not being so bad compared to someone else.

Accepting vs. Giving Up

Resigning yourself to "that's how it is today" is acceptance.

Resigning yourself to "that's how it will always be" is giving up.

Don't give up.

Be open, know what's in your heart and move in that direction.

Not all at once if it's not possible but more than nothing at all is always possible.

Moments to Remember - HiYL

Every moment becomes a memory as soon as it has passed. Choose to remember the smiles, the laughs, the happy times… and hugs that made you forget that there was anyplace else in the world. They may have been few and far between, but all together, they are everything. Those are the moments to remember.

No step is a wrong step

You may not be able to see a way, but that doesn't mean a way doesn't exist. 

Start trying. Start doing. You've thought and over thought but you'll only talk yourself out of even trying the more you over think from here. 

A wrong step isn't the end. 

No step is a wrong step if where you are isn't where you want to be. 

So any step is an increase in your favor that it will be a right step for your future. 

Take a step. 

Take another. 

If it isn't the right one, if it doesn't feel right, then keep on steppin'.
