Are you confused with life? Sometimes your world gets flipped upside down, a job gone wrong, an end to a relationship, and you feel as if you've hit rock bottom. Maybe you feel like you're not good enough and have nothing of value to offer? You may even feel like this confusion is a bad thing.
But it's the opposite.
Your confusion means that you are on the path to self discovery.
You are on the path to find your value.
