When I was preparing to leave my job I was worried about a million different things. My girlfriend could tell I was worried and asked me what was wrong. I didn’t know if she would get where I was coming from. She had never started a business. I was wrong.
She said, “Yes I understand. When I was walking and staying in shelters with my kids. It was also scary going to different houses trying to eat and sleep. We were cold and had no place to go”. I felt small. She went on to tell me her ex-husband would kick her and the babies out of the house. They would be forced to wander the streets trying to survive until he let them come back. Damn! Why was I scared?
It gave me perspective.
You never know where the wisdom will come from. I wouldn’t be able to do this without her.
