No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.

Think about how much time and energy we spend waiting and blaming. Waiting for the right time. Waiting for help. Waiting for it to be perfect. Blaming missed opportunities. Blaming the lack of support. Blaming our inadequacies. This mindset can be paralyzing, because there is no clear path. It happens when you've decided that everything is external and you have no control. I've been there plenty of times, stuck in quick sand that is self doubt and resentment unable to move forward because I'm waiting for someone or something to do it for me. Inevitably it is all up to choice. You choose the path you walk and how you choose to walk it.
The path isn't always as sunny as this one, and it won't always lead you to calm waters but you can choose to walk it as if it was. That's for you to decide.
