Beautiful words from Elle. Not only beautiful but inspiring.
When you’ve reached a bad end, choose to make it a middle instead.
How often do we despair because of where we’ve “ended up”? As in “I never thought I’d end up divorced.” Or, “I never believed I’d end up the wife of a philanderer.”
The thing is, we haven’t “ended up”. We’re here…sure. That’s the bad news. The good news is we don’t have to stay here. “Here” isn’t where it ends.
Present Day Sam Says: Although this was a Blast From the Past and obviously concerned adultery, I think it applies to life after the discovery, and after your life has been blown to smithereens. It’s what keeps me going some days- this thought that here isn’t where I’ll be forever. That eventually I’ll be somewhere better and more stable. I’ll be able to stand on my own two feet.
