You are going to heal from this, tomorrow, Wednesday, next month or maybe even next year. But you are going to heal from this.

I no longer compare myself with her or wonder what I need to improve or remove from my plate, for it was not me or her that was ever unsatisfied or wanting more—it was you, always you.
Those things, those punches and kicks, are just what we need to build up character.
