Our hearts may break, but they keep beating

Here’s the best advice nobody ever gave me. 

Learn not to panic over simple misfortune. Know that one trying incident doesn’t have to ruin the whole day. Don’t assume that an obstacle in one area means a setback everywhere. Trust that your ultimate contentment doesn’t depend on having things work out your way. 

Never allow the mean part of your brain to turn every little problem into a catastrophe. Practice living with all of your feelings, many of which you don’t want. Accept that ninety percent of life is a gradual progress punctuated substantial setbacks. Realize that when life goes to shit, your theatrics and storytelling are merely forms of exhibition. 

But always keep moving forward, even when you see no signs of momentum. Keep walking, even when your fear wants you to cower in the shadows. And learn to take slow, small, solid steps to build a forward momentum of healing. 

Because the minute you put the key of willingness in the lock, the latch springs open. 

Even for you. 

You, who thought you were little gods and that the world was here just for you. 

You, whose heart may break, but it keeps beating. 

You, who came from the stars and rush in where the angels fear to tread.
