We can prepare ourselves for a forthcoming exam, we can prepare ourselves for school, we can even prepare ourselves for an interview, but when we look at everything that happens in our lives, are we ever really prepared?
I was never prepared for life in the true sense. Without the support it was impossible. I’ve had to do all the preparatory work myself. If I couldn’t see a way through an issue, I would have to find a way. If I needed an answer I had to intuitively look for the answer.
I look for a resolve and I don’t give up. Not having support or the guidance prepared me to go it alone. It was either sink or swim. It wasn’t easy, but it did help me understand that if the help wasn’t forthcoming, I had to work on and help myself.
I don’t think any of us can be or will be fully prepared for what life hands out, but near enough has to be good enough.
