There are people who talk. They tell stories.
People ask for advice, and maybe people you know are reminded of you.
Across town. Across the country. Maybe even across the world.
“When it happened to my friend…”
There are people who wait to hear the outcome of your stories.
What happened to the girl who _____________?
The one who had a really bad year?
The one with the sick parent?
The one who went through the messy breakup and thought she wouldn’t recover?
You have an impact on people you don’t even know.
Of course, you can’t control what people say about you. There are some people who will always be haters, and some people who will always speak well of you. No matter what.
But you can control what you do.
So how do you want to show up for them? The people who will hear about you?
Do you want to be the person who gave up? Or the person who continued on, even in the path of difficulty?
And who are you going to be today?
Something to think about.
