Just because nothing big or ground breaking has happened in your life doesn’t mean it isn’t any less interesting or important than anyone else’s. Everyone’s story is important. Everyone has been through what only they know they have been through. 

If we rely on other people to help us be a better person, what will happen to us when they leave our side? Wouldn’t that make us fragile? The strength, courage and goodness that’s truly yours is within you. You just have to look for it inside. When you’ve found it, they’ll forever be at your disposal and no one can take that away from you.

Our lives are so hopelessly entangled in the choices of others, we can never have full control over our destiny or fate or purpose or whatever you want to call it. The choices we make will define us, of course, but so do the choices of everyone around us whether we know them or not.
