No matter how isolated you are and how lonely you feel, if you do your work truly and conscientiously, unknown friends will come and seek you.
3 aspects of reality no one can avoid:
3. Constant work
Learn to love the process of dealing with these 3 things
There are five apology languages:
Expressing regret (“I feel ashamed for how I hurt you.”)
Accepting responsibility (“I was wrong for doing that to you.”)
Genuinely repent (“I can only imagine how much pain I caused, I am so sorry. I won’t do that again. Next time, I will do _____ differently.”)
Making restitution (“This is how I will make it up to you _____.”)
Requesting forgiveness (“Will you forgive me for letting you down?”)
The longer I live, the more deeply I learn that love — whether we call it friendship or family or romance — is the work of mirroring and magnifying each other’s light.
∆ James Baldwin, Nothing Personal
even when you think you have no control, you get to control how you react. how you react is argubly the most important part of a situation
you might lose your way, but I promise you that life always finds a way of bringing you back to the things that are meant for you. you will feel the return.
