free advice from someone that needs adviced…
Sometimes you have to do things, even when everyone around you acts like it is wrong. You have to follow your heart. Sometimes it all makes sense later, even if you had to stand alone. Sometimes you find out you were wrong.
I say if you can muster the strength from within get up and try again. Keep going. Especially if others get in your face when you fall and try to shame you or kick you back down. IMO they are idiots. God bless their precious hearts and stupid heads. They ain’t fulling nobody but themselves if they try to act like they have never fallen. IE Nobody is perfect. Maybe they never had the courage to stand alone to begin with.
