It is better to have wisdom and knowledge than gold and silver – proven in life much too many times to argue against this. Then show off how good you are by travelling a road that avoids evil because watching where you are going may just save your life.
You will love and not be loved back. Give and not receive. Help and be left helpless. Teach and not be taught. Forgive and be forgotten. Trust and be doubted. Pray and be cursed by others. You will be unnoticed, unliked, unloved and unappreciated… But NEVER EVER NEVER let anyone else stop you from being YOU. Because YOU are the one stretching, growing and rising to a better job, career, love, relationship, opportunity. Never subtract the best of you to add the worst of anyone else.
