I’m grateful that I developed the courage to invest in my aspirations.
For decades I struggled to conform to a common trajectory to a successful life without a true desire to live it. The resentment gave me a tremendous amount of anxiety because I was never truly satisfied. I would go to the point of forcing myself to accept that because I could not endure hardship or sacrifice, I was broken. I didn’t deserve the fulfilling life I assumed only smart and dedicated people had earned.
