#35: You’re Not a Failure
This woman deserves a medal for her courage and for trying to get her life back on track. There’s no shame in working a part-time job and going back to school as an audit to try and better your life. On the contrary – it takes a lot of courage, dedication, and motivation – something that most of us don’t have.
This woman should be proud of herself, and if her former high school classmates can’t see that – they’re the ones who should be ashamed of themselves. She could’ve lied about what she was doing – like so many of the other stories on the list – but instead, she chose to take the higher road and be honest.
