Are You Better? or Bitter?
I am currently reading a book entitled “Rebound: From Pain To Passion.” It is the personal account of Matt Doherty’s journey to the pinnacle of successful and his fall to the pit of despair. He was recruited to play basketball at UNC and twelve years later he was recruited to coach the UNC basketball team. It was his dream job. Three years later, his dream turned into a nightmare, he was fired. He carried that baggage for many years and until he finally made a choice. These words from Josh Shipp helped turn his life around. “You either get bitter or you get better. It’s that simple. You either take what has been dealt to you and allow it to make you a better person, or you allow it to tear you down. The choice does not belong to fate, it belongs to you.” That is true for all of us. There are times we have to chose better or bitter.
