Knowing who you are is a very crucial aspect of healing yourself. How can you avoid a disaster if you are simply floating through life with no clear sense of what you stand for, and what you refuse to tolerate? There is a reason why the small town girl with big dreams, who gets to the big city, often ends up in some miserable and dare I say, compromising, situation. Think too of the unhappy Doctor who is only a Doctor because his parents decided that he needed to become the first Doctor in their family.
And as I conclude, I would like to encourage you to press on and always fix your eyes on the goal. Remember, Bill Gates, the world’s richest man said “its fine to celebrate success but it is more important to heed the lessons of failure”.
