  1. Yeah, dude – you are never alone. We’ve all got your back, even when you’re not aware. One secret is not to wallow – acknowledge, and move on. And, yes – God is good. V.

  2. Hey Dre,
    I bums me out to read some of these pieces where you are so hard on yourself-it’s why I rarely respond to them. I know you well enough to know that in this world of people that relish their shortcomings and even parade them, you at least try to be a better person. That puts you head and shoulders above them. It’s not the successes that shows the mettle of a person, but rather their efforts in the face of failure. I frequently have the argument with people on whether it’s better to be a person who tries to be good but occassionally fails (some call that hypocracy) or some one who accepts their failings and makes no effort to be better (consistant in their eyes). I feel with all my heart that it’s far better to try and fail than to not try. Your that person and why I respect you-I’ve got your back bro, don’t let it get you down. We’re all a work in progress. The only true failure is to no longer try.

    Every. Single. One. Of. Us.

  4. I hear you, Dre. In life, we all miss the boat once in a while and have to settle for taking the bus. But the key is to keep moving. Life is a constant learning lesson. Like Cyn said, everyone one of us is going through similar processes in which life often hands us learning curves. It’s how we react to those curves that matter. When we stop trying to be perfect and take on humble attitudes, our maturity expands. And, with this understanding we begin to look at others differently as well. When we realize and accept that our companions are going through similar processes, we will quit trying to hold them up to some level of perfection in our own eyes.
