Yes. Yes. and fucking yes. Do the fucking work and out will come who you fucking want to be. You fucking got this.
to see the world, things dangerous to come to,
to see behind walls, to draw closer,
to find each other and to feel.
That is the purpose of life.
The accuracy of this statement hits me a little more every day. Each of the rejections I’ve been hit with- not making it into the Ivy League college I wanted, my abusive ex dumping me, getting delayed a year in med school because there wasn’t room at that school- have pushed me gently toward the person I am today.
We need to keep believing this if we are to not just survive this, but to thrive through this. Failure. Rejection. Setbacks. Speed bumps. These are tools the strongest people can use to help them succeed.
Looking down at a road, everyone can see all the little cracks and patches. But look forward, and you can barely see them. You know they’re there, you’re not sure which will cause you to slow down or swerve, but as a whole, looking up, towards the horizon, the cracks disappear, and the road suddenly looks smooth.
Keep your head up, and the eye on the prize.
We’re almost there.
