Don't Let Your Struggle Become Your Identity
"Oh, that's the guy that has four babies by three different women."
"Who's the chick?"
"That's the one who got her car repossessed last week."
"What about that guy?"
"Who? Him? He's the one that can't keep a job."
We all have problems. Things come up in our lives that tend to take over our very being. You can't let that happen. Don't let your problems become the center of every day that you live. Doing so will cause people to identify you with whatever struggles that you may have.
Life was designed for us to have problems. It's true that some have a lot more than others, but that's beside the point. Problems are supposed to be temporary. There's a way out of every problem that society has ever known. It may not be easily achieved, but there is a way even if the odds aren't in your favor.
Be the one who overcame. Be the one who survived. Be the one who defied the odds and made something out of nothing. It's your life. Your destiny. Let your struggles mold you and not control you.
