I visited my mom today, and helped her apply for her retirement. She’s been at the same job for over 30 years. My cat (who’s currently staying with my mom) is doing well.
When you have the intention of being true to yourself, you’ll often encounter situations that show you what it’s like to not be true to yourself. Maybe the pain of not being who you truly are is meant to get you on the right path (for you). That’s what I think.
To live a great life and be a great person isn’t a typical thing to want. It’s a great thing to want, and a great path to travel. I wouldn’t want it any other way.
