I’m doing better than I ever was…
You are not someone else’s opinion of you. You are not damaged goods because you’ve made mistakes in your life. You are not going nowhere just because you’re not where you want to end up yet. You are someone who is wiser because you have the bravery to make mistakes. You are someone who has walked through rainstorm after rainstorm and keeps putting one foot in front of the other. I have learned that pain does make you stronger and walking through a bunch of rainstorms doesn’t make you damaged goods. It makes you clean.
