“The truth is, everyone is going to hurt you.
You just got to find the ones worth suffering for.” ~Bob Marley
People will let you down. Be okay with that. Learn not to take it personally. We are all flawed, and we all have faults. In the case of depending upon someone, you must always be prepared for things to go awry. We are complex human beings, and no one is perfect. Maintain a healthy level of detachment, and meet people where they are in life. Often we have high expectations, and this encourages success. However, when those expectations are not met the failure can feel epic. Don’t take it personally, and remind yourself that you are quite capable of bouncing back. You’re resilient, remember?
#PrincipleFive: Listen and learn from every experience and the people with whom you interact.
