Do you believe any of the following?

Poor choices, outright mistakes or failures, regardless of outcome, are to be excused, never admitted to, or used to serve as a warning to others including “loved” ones.

Mistakes, failure, or lack are badges of honor to be worn in public with pride.

Those of demonstrated lack of character are entitled to relationship with or the benefits of those of demonstrated character.

Perfect worlds, fairy tales, have-not subculture, or counterculture is culture and must be subscribed to when not to your benefit.

Level of expectation (over inflated, unrealistic, or low) does not determine the outcome.

If you’ve answered yes to any of these, you have been sold a bill of goods.

Take heart.

Those who are less than will stay the course.

Those who are more will make a course correction.

Happy trails
