I remember years ago being crushed when my 1st marriage failed but now looking back, I can see it was the best thing that could have happened as it allowed my life to be reworked into something so much better. I was young and felt the rejection as a bitter failure. I struggled terribly. I would tell my younger self now to not think of life's failures as an end point, but as an opportunity to rework life and learn. I would tell my 20 something self that other good things will open up. It's okay to feel sad about endings but endings are also new beginnings.
My advice would be to always strive to build each other up. Your life and contributions are too important to the whole. Believe that for yourself and believe it for other people. Be an encourager. Reframe how you view failures and give yourself the grace to feel what you feel, but also reach for the new beginning that is dangling in front of the recent ending. It is there. It always is...you just need to reach and hold on to hope.
As always, thank you for sharing and pinning.
