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 only 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 really bad.

Take care of yourself whatever happens.

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