"I believe whatever doesn't kill you simply makes you... stranger."
Do you believe some people are more fortunate than others or do you think people create their own luck? In your opinion, are some people cursed?
But for better or worse, I believe everyone makes their own destiny. Some people are better at seizing upon those opportunities they need to succeed, others are 'cursed' to continue to entertain a self-fulfilling prophecy of failure. Most people fall between the two.
I believe wherever you are, that is the best place you could possibly be at this particular moment in your life. And that thought depresses and motivates me to change my position all at once. But you can't have everything all at once. That's not how shit works. Anyone who tries to tell you differently is selling something.
