From the moment you were able to think and in a way partake in this journey called life yourself you have been given the chance to find back to your true self. That you might have already felt when you were just a tiny human in your mother's womb. But then you started to let other people's opinion matter - you went blind in a way. You started to oversee your true self and why you are on this earth. So maybe the one real goal in life is to re-find this purpose and fulfill it.
Now, I am guilty of this... I'm still learning and I'm not perfect. It's all about how a situation is handled, and about the way you treat other people that matters though. And at ghee end of the day, who matters enough to fight for, and to invest in.
