Recently I have gone through a situation that left me quite disappointed. However, looking on the bright side of things is always a great coping mechanism of mine. To make a long story short, I have learned to protect my heart, mind and spirit when confronted with people who seek to try to convince me that I should be doing something else with my life, mainly that I should be catering to them. Do not let people change the plans that you have for your life. Stay on your path without waivering. Stay focused. Don’t look for approval and don’t be controlled or manipulated. Stay the course. Do not waiver.
