Stop thinking everyone else is perfect (or that you're broken).
I discovered an AMAZING mastermind this morning here in Austin, Texas — serendipitously and synchronistically.
I covered that on my livestream today, but what I'd like to dive into here is how I went to coffee with the gentleman who introduced me to the group...
This is a guy who's obviously doing quite well for himself, with different branches of his marketing company, and when he asked me more about myself, I mentioned how I came from a family where my parents had a super unhealthy relationship and weren't the best parents.
In my mind, he must have have had the perfect upbringing.
But then, he revealed that he didn't, that in fact, his father took him to see a prostitute when he was 10.
It didn't hit me until this evening that I realized I approach everyone else as though they've had the perfect family. That I'm flawed in some fundamental way, when in fact, in my 39 years of being on this planet, I've only ever met one family who I thought was genuine healthy...
And everyone else had an entire range of issues.
When I was in yoga teacher, one of the teachers said that we all think we have these grandiose problems, but if we put all of our problems in a pile in the center of the room, we'd gladly take back our own problems — everyone else's seems much worse.
To that end, it's a beautiful reminder that the Divine never gives you more than you can handle. And, that what you're going through is precisely designed for your next upward evolution and spiraling.
You're not broken.
Your soul is always whole.
In fact, that's one of the things this marketing CEO told me: "Your Spirit will never be broken."
Can you believe that today?
