I’m sure all of us have had unfortunate things happen to us, and the gravity of it may vary. Some of us have been affected more severely than others, but we have the power to decide whether or not we want to let it consume us. It’s then should we build the integrity to do something against our sorrows.

“We are products of our past, but we don’t have to be prisoners of it.”

Rick Warren

While it is possible to disagree with this quote, I am addressing this quote to those who still have at least some glinting light left in them. That light may be your salvation, and once you’ve followed it, you have moved on and allowed an unfortunate past fall behind you. I often like to look back, not with grief or with shame or regret, but with pride. I survived, and I get to keep going on a strong note.

I apologise for this post to be short, especially when I am terribly inconsistent with these posts.
