I Blaze My Own Trail
In order for each person to arrive at their current situation in any given moment takes plenty of effort. Identifying toxic imperfections and trying to alter them is a positive thing. However, despite any flaws, the person that you are today, at this very moment, is amazing. You have faced challenges and conquered many issues in your life and you will keep conquering adversities in the future. When problems arise and there are big challenges to overcome, you will simply look at the situation and scoff because you have already dealt with such issues and can rise up and be triumphant.
Nobody knows the unique road that you have traveled to get where you are now – the personal hell that you have lived through. You have your own opinions, perspectives and knowledge, which is valuable to you and those around you. Living a glorious and fulfilling life, doing the very best you can and causing no harm to other people is a commendable position and you should feel proud of yourself. Love yourself and lift yourself.
Do not judge your worth based on anyone’s opinion of you – they do not truly know you or understand the things that you have dealt with in your life. See yourself and recognize your positive attributes. You are the only one who is responsible for standing up again each time that you have been knocked down. You will face many challenges throughout your life and if you are lucky someone will help you through the tough times, but this is a luxury that you cannot rely upon. You are the only person that you can ever truly rely on. Given that fact, do not be disloyal to yourself by giving up, especially after all of the things that you have been through already.
You will love and be loved in this lifetime. You will wound and will also be wounded. You will stumble and fall and you will make all sorts of mistakes, but we all do. In life, there are only two things that really matter: consequences and atonement. Intending to say or do the right thing has no bearing on reality. The only solace it gives is in knowing who we are and realizing that we attempted to do the right thing. It does not mean that we do not have to seek forgiveness at certain times.
Create your own path to walk along and trust yourself each step of the way. Have faith in yourself and take good care of yourself because you deserve nothing less. Others love you and we all feel your pain. Sincerely. Let yourself accept and give affection freely. Make the world an even better place because you are in it. Live and love.
