As we go through our lives, we often suffer at the hands of fate, time, even other people. As this happens more and more, a number of things occur within us. We might start to feel like the victim, causing us to lose our sense of self-empowerment and nobility. We might find that we feel utterly powerless, or that there is nothing we can do to help ourselves.

When we think about relationships, we tend to immediately think of romantic relationships. But there are so many other bonds and connections that we make in life. With your friends, with your colleagues, and even with your family.
We’re all here to do what we’re all here to do. While some are happy to trudge along in the same job, the same house and the same routine for day after day, year after year, the dynamic mindset abhors inertia.
Relationships are challenging; we wouldn’t have it any other way. Humans are narcissistic to the point where we believe we can do the unthinkable, climb the unscalable mountain. It seems this innate desire to triumph where others fail lures us into a false sense of security. Relationships aren’t guarantees and they never will be. This acceptance leads us to a single breakthrough: failure isn’t a letdown.
You are not a perfect human being, and neither am I. In fact, no one on this entire planet can say that they have never made a mistake. We’ve all done things that we aren’t proud of, whether it was bullying a kid at school or lying to your boss to get out of work.
