Sometimes you get knocked down.
You're walking along, moving through life and something happens through no fault of your own and you get knocked down.
Your parents make a mistake that blows up your life.
Your lover cheats
Someone you trusted, causes you severe pain and it feels like your word is falling apart.
Sometimes you jump into trouble.
You purposely engage into that behavior that you know will tear your life apart.
You make the same mistake again, even though you know will get caught and the person you love will be hurt by your actions.
You completely blow up your own life.
Get up anyhow and fight. Fight for change. Change is possible. It will cost you. It will be painful. It will cost you.
It will force you to risk.
Change is never easy.
Change is possible.
Whether you've been knocked down or willingly jumped, please get up and fight.
Do whatever it takes.
Go make an appointment with a counselor.
Register at that school for those chances.
Call your loved one and apologize.
Offer an olive branch.
Just get up. Don't stay down. Don't be defined by your failure. It doesn't have to be the last chapter in the story. It doesn't even have to be the defining story.
It can just be a chapter.
Get up. Don't stay down. Borrow my belief in you, even if you don't believe yourself yet. Engage the change process. Belief will come.
