Do you realize that you actually have the greatest advantage?
All your life's mistakes and any challenges that you're going through right now, has actually made you a person with a broader perspective.
You have more kindness in your heart. You probably don't judge people for what they do cause you know how it feels to be there. You have 'true empathy'.
This stuff cannot be learned by just reading books or watching movies... Some things can only be experienced.
And if you're reading this... I believe that one day (very soon), you're going to be able to connect-the-dots and look back at this stage of your life as the greatest step forward.
We're at the beginning of a magnificent new year. Follow your heart. Do what you have to do. The past is the past. Every minute is a blessing.
