About My Moment of Madness
‘Where is my life going?’ ‘What is my life purpose?’ are the questions that at least once everyone in their life comes across because some situations in life make you give up. Being an individual struggling with epilepsy since my teen years, the time when actual life begins, made me understand enough about life’s harsh realities and difficulties.
What I’ve learned from my experience is that life is not a bed of roses. At least, it has never been for me. You need to survive through it. No matter what challenges life presents you with or how unjust anything may appear, don’t let yourself become the victim. Refuse to let fear, sorrow, and negativity dominate you; instead, take these challenges of life just like you must pass the levels in a video game to proceed further.The ratio of difficulty for each new level increases. It’s easy to restart a level or respawn your character if the game isn’t going your way. But, when you decide that giving up is not an option your inner-warrior breaks through and you are able to see the problem clearly. Working against your inner demons with your innate courage, love and positive attitude helps you to understand that you are tougher than you thought. You become more capable of dealing with problems because there is no other way. Life isn’t a video game; however, you can still prevail
