You are right where you are supposed to be. Bad decisions are lessons we need to learn to become who we are supposed to be.
We become the person we were meant to be in order to be of service to our fellow human beings. We take those bad decisions and give them a purpose. We don’t judge, but when others make those same bad decisions, we are there to say,
Here’s what it was like for me.
Here’s how I got through it.
Here’s what I learned.
You are not alone in this.
Your detours weren’t for nothing. And I for one am glad you are exactly THIS YOU.
