But I’ve learned a hard lesson — a life lesson that’s shaped me even as it broke me — that all the “try” in the universe doesn’t always get you what you want. Or who you want.
And sometimes, along the way, you lose … yourself.
The great American dream of “having it all” can be a heart-wrenching myth.
Maybe we’re not meant to have it all this side of eternity. Maybe life is more about making choices than straddling virtual fences and trying to hang on to that elusive everything. And if a desire or dream or got-to-have-it longing is costing you every last ounce of you — maybe, just maybe — the price is too high.
Sometimes the answer is no.
And you walk away with tears in your eyes. A shattered heart.
But you still have something left: you.
And you are highly valuable.
In Your Words: When have you realized it was time to stop holding out for a yes and accept a no? How did you let go?
