Boy, this one certainly rings true for me. I love Berke Breathed, and this quote to me means it’s never too late to be happy. I like to talk about my childhood, if only to show people that it’s miles behind me. I don’t talk about my upbringing to make anyone feel sorry for me, to whine, or even to lay blame. Rather, I want anyone that has grown up in a difficult environment know that they can grow up to have a happy life. It doesn’t happen overnight, and generally you need some type of help (therapy, al-anon, faith, friends, and more) but it can happen.
“It’s never too late to have a happy childhood.”
― Berke Breathed
Never, ever, give up when it comes to your happiness.
