If you feel that in the past years, life has thrown at you challenge after challenge, battle after battle, stay here. I've got something for you. The challenges that you are facing, are of your own.
This means, that no matter how much you try, that no matter how close that person is to you, you are the only one who really understands how hard everything has been. You are the only one who fully understands how difficult those battles were, and how much you got to grow when fighting them. This doesn't mean that the people around you don't understand at all. It doesn't mean that they don't care. It means that they also have battles of their own, which are not smaller nor greater than yours, and which blind them, in the same way that your battles may sometimes blind you of theirs. So when you feel unheard, unseen, and undervalued, hear them, see them, and value them. They have suffered as much as you have. Compassion, is the only thing that will get you closer to them. Compassion, is the only thing that will allow you to connect.
You're No Fool
