“It is better I were never born than to be doing what I was not born to do! –NDJP
Tell me why one should still be alive, enjoying life, claiming to be special in life, yet s/he is not actually doing what s/he was born to be doing? The thought of you are this or that, therefore you won’t try to unleash other aspects of your life should be dealt with. “I am in Pharmacy, therefore writing shouldn’t be what I should be doing!” who told you that? I have opined in one of my numerous quotes that destiny is a cocktail of flairs/talents; no one person was born with only one flairs. Don’t just limit yourself to just one thing: maybe only the vocation or discipline you happen to find yourself in.
Develop other parts of you despite what you have found yourself doing. I leave you to ponder over what your flairs are; today, I am not studying English/Linguistics/Literature/Philosophy, I happen to be studying Applied Biochemistry; but writing in motivational or inspirational ways is one of my flairs; mind you, I said ONE of my FLAIRS; that means I have other flairs. The APPLIED is not only in the field of BIOCHEMISTRY; I take the APPLIED to other aspects of my life.
I don’t see why you should be limiting your abilities that much. I have once suffered from inferiority complex, self comparison, and even depression, but I never allow such to have absolute control of who I should be. Do not go down on your knees praying for OPPORTUNITIES to come your ways if you have not actually started developing your ABILITIES. As I am writing this piece, I am heartbroken, I am feeling discouraged, things are not going as I really expected, after one problem comes another; I am already feeling as if I couldn’t continue any longer, it is as if I am losing hope and patience; yet I mustered up and decided to put up this piece to encourage someone somewhere who is encountering one challenge or another. I won’t let my own challenges to encumber me from making better changes in the lives of people who are around me.
I was not born into that rich family; okay, let me tell you this: I always believe it that I am not poor, I am only challenged financially, likewise many people. My parents are no more, but I couldn’t use because the reality to make my talents to be no more: I need to develop every ability in me. My father left me with no patrimony, but that shouldn’t mean I won’t be living in harmony. No matter how long my agonies decide to tarry and how much they may be, that won’t stop me from giving thanks to God as I share with people the little testimonies I have. Tears may be rolling down my cheeks every moment, but why won’t I care about making others to be happy; I should let my sorrows to torment them?
Be yourself, I once prayed to die; yes, I did [maybe I was morbid, but I intentionally did]; yet I am alive today, whereas many people I loved had gone to eternity, people who didn’t even pray to die. Then why won’t I live out my potential? Sometimes when I do bring out my time and my mind to encourage young people, they feel like never letting me go, some of them who are females may find themselves shedding tears.
Please, Don’t give up, don’t think you can’t make it to the top; never stop! Always make yourself to be that only one defeat won’t make you to lose fit and never be discouraged that you couldn’t make it in another feat.
NOTE: I DIDN’T TELL PEOPLE WHAT I’VE PASSED THROUGH SO AS TO ATTRACT PITIES; ALSO, I DON’T TELL PEOPLE MY SUCCESS AS BOASTS.
