We all fall sometimes. Whether it’s an unhealthy mindset, relationship or an addiction. What defines us is how we rise after falling. But how can we do that if we are in the same environment that led us down this place that made us sick? When a flower doesn’t bloom, what do we do? If we want the flower to grow and thrive, we have to change the environment. Maybe where it was planted was
We learn more about who we are and what we are made of when we go through adversity. Overcoming difficult challenges builds our character. To overcome, we need to learn how to become more resourceful, how to rely on ourselves and who we can trust.

We tend to focus on what the relationship isn’t giving us, rather than all the positive things we do experience
Falling is inevitable. What matters is how well we rise after falling. Failure is experience and the most successful people have failed more times than they can count. Let’s take a look at how some have fallen. We all know how well they have risen today. J.K. Rowling was an unemployed, divorced single mother when she wrote Harry Potter.

We all have baggage and scars from previous relationships and even our family of origin. Our past hurts and fears can transfer into new relationships because we are scared of the same thing happening again.
