We create our own path. If you have dreams and goals, they can only be accomplished by you - Not our families, nor our friends. It is up to you to make them come true. No one can make you happy, unless you know how to make yourself happy. No one can love you, unless you know how to love yourself first. You are the most important factor in the equation.
Stop making excuses, and blaming others, family, and circumstances. We do not choose where we come from, but we can choose what we do with our lives. Suffering is a choice, as well. Pain is necessary for growth, but the amount of pain we choose to endure is our choice.
And above all, stay humble,
