I’ve had so many heartbreaking shitty times in my life so far - but for some reason, every time I set out to learn something new. As a distraction, just to get through the moments in between work and work, to fill the spaces in my mind that would otherwise be filled with tortured thoughts begging to be numbed with booze or drugs or sex or begging for it to end.
When we self educate, we empower ourselves like crazy! So every time you find yourself in a shitty time, go learn something new! Each one, teach one. That way you’ll never be able to hate the hard times because (even if you can’t see the reason they had to happen) you created some pretty amazing reasons anyway.
What’s something new and exciting you learnt recently?
