July 4, 2012 by Tom McG I think one of the very most painful experiences is when some terribly disappointing thing happens to us and it seems to be due, at least in part, to our own lack of courage. When we let our fears get the best of us and lose something or someone that could have been great, it is shattering. Please take heart, you were only doing the best you could; only accomplishing what you were ready for. If you can let it, everything seems to work out for the best somehow in the long run. This experience may well help you be ready the next time such a crossroads appears…and it will…maybe even with the same people! Good luck.
