I had a conversation about this today. It’s so easy for us to do what others want, or expect us to do. To stay in a marriage or a relationship because it’s easier than leaving it, even if it leaves you cold, or alone, or unfulfilled. Lord knows I have done it.
Lord also knows that I have learned the lesson now, that my life is mine, to decide what I want out of it. And I will fight my way to the light if I have to. But I won’t settle for less than I want. I am lucky, I know what that is. I know what I want, I have some idea of how to get it.
But I intend to extend my hand to those still seeking. Not to do it for them, but to support them and cheer them on in the quest to give their lives meaning. No one should settle. Life is for living, fully, passionately. As people have supported me, I will pay it forward.
You are enough. You are so enough. It is unbelievable how enough you are. (another Liz Gilbert quote)
