At what age did you gain control of your life?

I don’t evaluate anyone by the circumstances they were born or raised into because I don’t want to be evaluated that way. Do you?

You didn’t have any choice where you were born, what you were born into, who raised you, or how you were raised. You are not your circumstances. I’ve said that here many times before. Only now I’m turning it around and using the same principle as a reason to increase empathy and understanding for people from backgrounds foreign to you.

When I observe and evaluate a person, I do it by how they treat people, by the choices they make, and whether they turn their circumstances into something better than they were given.

Everything is training for something. Do the work.
