There is a purpose for everything. Stick with it.
I recently had the opportunity to see one of my favorite pastors at a local church. His message meant so much to me because it was a reminder that everywhere I find myself has meaning. Sometimes we become frustrated about where we find ourselves in life. We feel like we should be further ahead. We feel like that issue shouldn’t bother us anymore. We feel like we should be in a different company. We feel like we should be in a relationship (or get out of the one we are in). While you all know by now that I am NOT an advocate of unhealthy relationships of any genre, I want you to take a look around and consider everything you’ve been able to learn thus far. Now take a look back at what the past places, especially the uncomfortable ones, have taught you and allowed you to teach others. Sometimes we don’t value things because their value is not apparent at the moment, but I guarantee you that it will sneak it’s way into your future saying: “This is why you needed to be there.”
