If the same people who are outraged and violent, would turn to being outraged and motivated to help their neighbor – with kindness, helpfulness, and generosity, the world would be on the fast track to peace. It is your responsibility and your own self – who can make things better — or worse.
I existed for a long time making excuses for what I did or did not have/get/achieve in life. It took a long time to understand what role I played in my own life. Sometimes I write these things to remind myself, to refresh my lessons, to put myself back in place. It’s a good exercise to keep me on track. I was my biggest restraint. But also, what set me free.
