“What we call our destiny is truly our character and that character can be altered. The knowledge that we are responsible for our actions and attitudes does not need to be discouraging, because it also means that we are free to change this destiny. One is not in bondage to the past, which has shaped our feelings, to race, inheritance, and background. All this can be altered if we have the courage to examine how it formed us. We can alter the chemistry provided we have the courage to dissect the elements.”
― Anaïs Nin
Does it really matter what happened to us in our lives? Some people blame everything that goes wrong in their lives because of the way they grew up, that they didn't have the opportunities others had or that they are the wrong sex or race. We all have tragedy and heartbreak happen to us, nobody is exempt from that. There are a multitude of reasons why we should rise above the bondage from the past. We can recreate ourselves and change our life path to reach the place we know we belong.
Why don’t we use tragedy and a difficult childhood as a reason to be the best we can be? Show the world how perfect you are as yourself, in spite of what went wrong. I believe that setbacks should be the reason to fight hard for what we want and stand our ground. The easiest thing in the world is to give up and let things fall down around us because of our past.
Just because you are not rich enough or beautiful enough, grew up with only one parent or no parents, was abused and mistreated doesn't mean you can’t be a wonderful loving and caring person. The power lies in our own hands, not how we think circumstances shaped us.
There are valuable lessons to be learned from any unfortunate event that befell us. Take the cards life dealt you and use it to create a new future, instead of using as an excuse to give up. You are not going to get another chance to make this life the best you can.
You are a perfect unique and beautiful human being and you deserve only the best. Use your life experience to change your life today. You can do it!!!
