Don’t take this the wrong way. I am glad I come across stories like yours on Medium, but in the sense that it goes to show that we all encounter bumps in the road at some point. More often than not, people fixate on other individuals who reach their respective finish lines. However, we often do not get to see their journey up to that point.
I find it interesting how you definitely have some natural talent to your name. You checked off all of the right boxes up to a point, but then life has thrown you a curveball. But this in turn, oddly enough, gives me hope. I feel like you are someone who will definitely “make it.” Likewise, this means I am certainly capable of getting my own act together as well.
Thanks for sharing an awesome piece. Best wishes.
