Falling down happens to everyone at some point in life. Getting back up is the beast of it all. My joke is “boot straps never go out of style cuz we all gotta use ’em every now & then.” This doesn’t mean everything you attempt will eventually fail and you must do over. It does mean that we are all able to achieve great things but occasionally we regress. The problem with regression is that it is given a negative connotation with little respect to the lessons we learn in the time of decline.
Never apologize for finding yourself at a low point in your life. Accept it, and then find the motivation to rise above it. Remember, too, you didn’t fall down overnight so give yourself some time to climb back up. ~trvw
