  1. Yeah, we have been told a lot about the way to look into life and it’s hurdles in schools. But, the point is with time the approach changes.

  2. Over the years I have learned to leave things that I can’t control. But have positive mindset that everything will be fine

  3. One must know what kind of praises were meant to insult or appreciate you! You need to overcome those negative ideas and hang on to the positivity you are carrying. We are living in a crucial world where many would try to belittle you. Muster the strength to be truthful to others.

  4. Very interesting!!! All I can say is this nobody has the right to look down or mock anybody. At times there is a confusion between this and being a critique. We must always know the difference between the two.

  5. It is good to always reason out whatever text one come across. Old age doesn’t necessary mean wisdom I believe

  6. After reading this quote, I was really laughing out loud. “dismissing whatever insult your soul”, that tell more about our personal believe. Deep quote Tom

  7. Yes oo, you are right. Not everything will you allow get to you, discard anything that’s not fitten to your soul. Nice quote

  8. I agree, not all we have been told is true or good, people make mistakes and we need to reevaluate the things constantly looking to be better every day.

  9. We all need to do some serious re-examination of everything we have been taught. I couldn’t agree more.
