Often I have sought a guru. Someone to see and acknowledge my potential. To take me under their wing, to teach and empower me. Someone to say, “I see you’re special. No one else can do what you can. Let me show you to home. Where you belong.”
I thought I found a few of those gurus in my life. I wedged myself up under their wings and treated them like gods.
They all let me down. None of them tolerated my neediness.
The way-too-obvious solution is to find the guru within. And be someone that won’t let myself down.
Turns out, the guru within won’t put up with my neediness either…
