Sometimes, during the normal course of human existence, we come across realizations so big they knock us flat. They might be about spirituality, our friends and family, our circumstances, or even – gulp – us. It can be overwhelming, and we have a tendency to start thinking poorly of ourselves (whether or not it’s our fault).
After the initial freak-out, after you’ve come to terms with whatever it is, it’s important to realign your perspective.
Yes, you might be in the wrong line of work. Yes, God might be different than you thought. Yes, you may have screwed up royally or emotionally wounded someone. Yes, someone may have horribly hurt you.
That doesn’t change the fact that you are still worthy.
You are worthy of the good things in your life: the supportive people, the success you’ve had so far, the joy you find in the beauty around you, and especially the love and kindness of others.
Take a deep breath, lift your head up, and walk on.
