Sorting through the struggles within is a singular responsibility. No one else can do it for me. They wouldn't even be able to truly understand because it is inside me. They can't stand me in front of an x-ray scanner to read my thoughts and feelings and emotions because these exist in the abstract.
This past year has been an amazing adventure. I have learned so much about myself, accepted some things and can now practice new skills to change some things. Hardship is a good education. The struggle doesn't take as much effort. I think I have developed some emotional muscles!
"Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved. We would never learn to be brave and patient if there were only joy in the world."
- Helen Keller
