There are times when things won't make sense. Some of them are:
When you work a job that doesn't utilize your strengths
When you don't take time to do the things that feed you
When you let other people manipulate and control you (whether they intend to do this or not)
When you're struggling with hurt
When you tie your happiness to the actions of another
When you're involved in something that just doesn't suit you
You will know the difference between someone telling you a difficult truth and someone blowing smoke up your ass. A difficult truth will resonate with you and someone blowing smoke will leave you confused. People who honestly love you will tell you the difficult truths.
