No matter who you are or what circumstances you are in, all of us are shaped by sundry factors which could make our lives a paradise or hell. It is obvious that our environment is a double-edged sword.
What our parents, educators and relatives had taught us influence us either positively or negatively. As children, our families were unaware of the negative attitudes and feedback that were said by them, which could be the poison that could remain in our veins till death.
Nevertheless, we are mature now and own the necessary skills to break down any obstacles to go forward to build a bright future. That’s why we should give up thinking of the past failures which only aggravate things and put ourselves in hot water.
It is said that we are the outcome of our thoughts. Some think positively while others do the opposite and live in darkness with their negative thoughts. I am skeptical that someone could alleviate your sufferings or alter your circumstances. No way! Just trust yourself. You are behind the steering wheel of your life and thoroughly free to direct it the way you want.
Therefore, let’s set off in search of better opportunities and stop demolishing our lives by being dependents on others. It is time to pull the trigger inside us and set up the foundation of a good life and shining ending; by perseverance and endurance the race can be won, and any obstacle can be overcome. But always remember: No pain! No gain! And as you sow, you will reap.
