Or ill-treated by someone for no apparent reasons.
If you don't like someone's story, write your own.
And yet it is in bad times, that one understands how strong someone is, how badly one wants something, how hard one has to work in order to achieve something that is worth stress, pain, doubts, fear, tears and frustration.
It’s a free world with big, open borders. [...] For the first time in human history, your options really are endless.
But you’re going to have to give something the very best of yourself, and never look back.
Even if one feels like a big, huge, sad, scary nothing.
It is practically never the case.
So the best thing to do is just... doing something.
Taking action. Starting small and then going bigger and bigger afterwards. To notice the fear and the sadness and the hopelessness and to acknowledge it, without giving in.
Being brave and resilient doesn't mean being fearless or just irresponsible. It means being strong enough to stay in the unpleasant situation instead and to work hard for changing it a little bit at the time. To dedicate time to what really matters. To get back to life, leaving the standby mode behind oneself.
So how brave do you feel?
How resilient are you?
How much time do you still want to live in standby?
And above all... how much risk are you willing to take, in order to be happy and to face your demons?
