We all fall sometimes.
It happens in different ways. It is almost always unexpected and out of the blue.
When we fall, we know it. It hurts, we look like a fool and we put in the effort to get back up.
But what does falling look like?
You've fallen when your mind is filled with anxiety and worry, when you are feeling insecure and self-conscious.
You've fallen when fear and apprehension dictate your course, when you feel unsettled.
You've fallen when you are selfish and rude, when your words are sharp and cut at people's hearts.
You fallen when you act with an air of indifference, concerned with only your own comfort and needs.
You've fallen when you fume with anger and jealousy gnaws at your heart, when you mind is caught up in strong wants and mistaken needs.
If you don't listen, don't give a damn and can't stop talking about yourself, you've fallen.
So get up.
Things don't need to be this way, there is a path out of this. This isn't permanent. But you have to recognize that you have fallen.
It is ordinary to fall. It is the extraordinary that can maintain their composure and get back up.
We need you to get up.
