“Disillusionment isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
Disillusionment can feel like a downer when our dreams are burst.
But for me it’s sort of a necessary step, a right of passage, about maturing,
facing reality in your life as it is, not as you want it to be.
It happens that we pursue our ambitions thinking we are pursuing one thing,
but as it happens, your life reveals to you who you are.
And it’s seldom by design.”
