Have you ever heard that everything bad is good for something? I know, it sounds pretty bitter-sweet, however, every negative and painful past event that took place in your life, every failure or rejection had some significance and over time you will find out why it happened and see where it has moved you.
You may find that it happened so that you could move forward. Maybe it happened to make you realize something. Perhaps you have become stronger or wiser. And you may also find that if this dark event did not take place in your past, you would be where you were before and you would not shine.
Allow yourself to learn and grow. Look for lightness in darkness and goodness in badness. You’re a star in the night sky. You are your own light.
