Many times I've seen myself being interviewed by prestigious magazines or exclusive shows as a kid. I'd sit on my cute little chair and mimick answering questions about how I made it to the top 20 percent.

Till date, I still see it. I even practice my answers in my head and in my room.

If I took the hand that was dealt me then I would be nowhere in life
Yeah, I had to think smart
Threw away the deck and got my own cards
Long before I had the money to afford a car– NF

The first thing my own life has taught me is forgiveness. Coming from a home where the grandfather is a dictator, father an infidel, Aunt a two-face and cousin a gossip (not the one I'm close with today), I had to learn forgiveness.

It was hard. Trust me. I held so much anger, so much rage towards my family. I learned what it means to forgive at a really young age. It was self taught too. I knew I just had to let it all go if I'd move forward with my life. So yes, I forgave. Most of all, I also forgave myself.

The next lesson I learned was Courage. Courage to face the world even when I was called ugly and a bastard. Yeah. Lol. Those were the times.

I still learned to hold my head high and brush off the comments. At least, till I was alone to let my emotions show. I learned at a very young age that the way I react to the people around me would ultimately determine how I react to situations too. Lol.

It took courage to cut off from a lot of people. To stand alone for what I believe; my values. It took courage to believe in myself, my future and my worth.

Finally, I learned Perseverance. Till today, I'm still persevering. I've gone days without proper meals because I couldn't afford them but I've learned to always keep that smile on my face. I've learned that it's better to be happy than depressed.

I've learned that a smile can brighten up the day of someone even though you might be in a dark pit. I've learned that consistent hardwork would eventually produce the right results.

Most of all, I've learned to not just exist. I've learned to live each moment with vigor, passion and total comprehension.

The summary is this: you are going to make a mistake, you're going to commit a blunder but it doesn't mean you're a failure. Forgiveness is key to a free life. Before you can forgive anyone, you must forgive yourself first.

No one who is a success today started with moping and blaming. Accept responsibility for your actions. When you do this, you'd realize that your future depends on you. Whoever you become tomorrow is all you. So, now what? Add value to yourself.

Don't laze. One major thing about successful people is they are always on the go. First to come in, last to leave. They fall so many times but it doesn't make them a failure. The success is in rising each time you fall. The courage to stand even when people laugh at you. To look the world dead in the eye and say, "you can break bones but not spirit".

I'll have you know, success is failure turned upside down. So when you make that mistake, it's okay. Forgive yourself, accept responsibility, be brave to start all over and endure till the end. Be Kind, Wise and Fierce.

THANKS FOR READING, SAYONARA!

Those are lovely sentiments @deraaa

Your attitude is spot on, I love your positivity and yes, we all make terrible mistakes, the thing is you’ve got to get up, dust yourself off and TRY all over again. Strength to you ❤️🤗💕🤗❤️

This is quite a special post @deraaa . Very insightful, personal, and important. Forgiveness and Perseverance: 2 incredible qualities to hold and display. I have so much respect and admiration for you as a person, as a woman. I do hope that one day all of your dreams come true, my friend. Please look after yourself. Keep being fierce you wonderful, beautiful being.

I wondered for a brief moment who NF was (the quote)... I see this is a brief extract of song lyrics by Nathan John Feuerstein also known simply as 'NF' hehe.

Oh wow. I have a feeling you googled him?😂
I don't know why that is funny but it is. Lol. I am doing really well. Exams are on a roll daily now with at most one day apart and so I don't have time for much except revision and preparation. You doing good? You'd see me in your discord as soon as I have this all sorted. Say hello to your lovely boys and you are someone I do admire here a lot. Your words mean so much to me. Thank you very much Sam

I am sure you will do well. You are very diligent ❣️As I write this, it is 23h18 here at my table in England. My boys are long asleep but I will give them your wishes in the morning. Oh, and I loved our little discord chat 🤗 Speak soon x

Where is dad in all of this? 🥺

Forgiveness is key to a free life. Before you can forgive anyone, you must forgive yourself first.

Someone told me this once

"He who apologies first is the bravest. He who forgives first is the strongest. And he who forgets first is the happiest"

And I haven't forgotten till date.

I've learned that a smile can brighten up the day of someone even though you might be in a dark pit. I've learned that consistent hardwork would eventually produce the right results.

This is true, but there is also a time to let someone know if you are hurting. And also a time to evaluate if that work is producing good results. Maybe another approach will get you there faster? Or perhaps the goal itself has changed, without you even realizing it?
