The people who love me, the people I really depend on, were never the critics who were pointing at me while I stumbled.
They weren’t in the bleachers at all. They were with me in the arena. Fighting for me and with me.
Nothing has transformed my life more than realizing that it’s a waste of time to evaluate my worthiness by weighing the reaction of the people in the stands.
The people who love me and will be there regardless of the outcome are within arm’s reach.
This realization has changed everything.”
