The moment you stop waiting for others to treat you in the same way you treat them.
When you realize that when it comes down to it some people will always choose to do what is best (most convenient, most fun) for them.
When you experience that the people who have the most will most often do unimaginable things in the name of money and status.
When you expect support and encouragement and find yourself alone.
When someone you thought would always have your back moves on to a trophy wife, trophy friend or trophy life.
That is the moment of change, of choice, of deciding. Sometimes you choose to get back in line and ask for more.
Sometimes you choose change, you choose to stare down fear and move forward listening to your own voice. No longer waiting for approval, directed by the opinion of others, you see a path you didn’t realize was there. You experience catharsis.
When you are brave in the face of fear, when you realize that keeping your own counsel isn’t loneliness but wisdom, when you accept the challenge to live the best version of the life you alone were meant to live, you will know success.
