It takes a great deal of wisdom, strength and self-esteem to say no to the thing you’ve wanted the most once you’ve realized that it came at a time in which you’re not ready for it (but it sucks big time, okay?).
Life is, after all, about living and being and not about achieving. It’s about staying true to who we are and holding on to what matters the most in life – our well being and loving relationships – no matter what happens.
I’m thankful to have known these very important lessons this early.
