You don’t know what other people are going through, the sacrifices they had to make, the “ask” that they needed to heed. Fame and fortune are empty shells. The real treasure lies in your capacity to build and rebuild. We all have potential. We just need to start owning it and make something out of it.
Being vulnerable to someone is a scary thing. We fear judgment. We avoid repercussions too risky to take. But we all long for that safe place. A place where you and I could just be us.

We are always bound to move forward until we no longer can.
