Shit Happens, Take Care of Yourself

Many things are beyond your control.

No matter how hard you try to make things happen, no matter how careful or calculated you are, there are forces at play that you’ll never predict. There’s no guarantee. That’s reality.

And that’s the reason lessons come after a bad experience.

Bad experiences could be avoided sometimes, though. Of course do your best to avoid them.

But don’t beat yourself up when things go wrong. That’s an added expense. You lose time and the opportunity to correct things.

Shame is normal. But don’t let the darkness win.

Process your emotions privately.

Taking responsibility isn’t only about admitting the mistake — it’s also about self-care when things get extremely rough.

Take care of yourself whatever happens.

Because there are people who love you more than you can ever imagine.
