When you face obstacles, that’s a sign of progress. It is evidence that you have made a change. However, this is easier said than done. When you make a certain change, whatever its degree is, a focused vision is needed to close your eyes to other factors which can help in no further steps rather than complicating things. Your life can never be lived by someone else.  You are responsible for your failures as well as for your successes. When you fail, never blame somebody for taking part in your failure. Contrariwise, when you succeed, be ready to appreciate  others’ help even though it can’t be proved in a concrete sense.

It is a form of illusion to coin every pitfall with others’ intervention in one way or another. We rarely start from within to protect potential attack from our so-called external world. We merely label our inner self to be innocent and claim that it is out of any such investigation. Rather, we neglect it and move far beyond the limits of others’ safe zone to react to what is mostly worth forgetting about. Our decisions are most of the time a result of the accumulation of certain pitfalls and progress. Nevertheless, the crux of the matter lies in how to connect the two by finding a way out of the first and an enforcement of the second without directing the arrows to any particular external part.

 In our daily life, a great concern is devoted to the proper construction of the self and the right destruction of the other. This seems unacceptable in a particular sense. But, a deep scrutiny of our desires proves this truth. The wrong is mistaken and deviated from its right form. Hardly do we believe in the devilish side in ourselves and in its uncanniness and mystery. We always try to find a way out of this trouble by sticking falshood and biased judgments on the other to prove our failure or decadence. Consequently, it happens that we retrieve all that sort of mischief in an embellished form that uncovers our disequilibruim rather than stressing our pretended equilibruim. 
What has been said so far may fall in that frame of the uncontrollable meaning. This is true once we do not reconsider the point of reference of judgement and the perspective from which we claim the truth is told. Thus, the sense of positive self should prevail to enforce that clear cut with its mostly unveiled devilish side.
