If you’re at a difficult point in your life, you can frame it like this.

Your entire life was leading you up to this point.

You will consider all your pain and suffering, all the personal transformation you’ve been through. You will see the through line from who you were as a kid to who you are now.

Framing a difficulty like this has the effect of emboldening you. This is your destiny, and you’re right where you were always going to be.
