I do NOT condone the ridiculous display of “helplessness” to garner sympathy for problems that are inherently self inflicted.
Every individual has the ability and capacity to change their lives. It is your own fault if you lack the motivation, intellect, or fortitude to accomplish the change.
I was poor, but I overcame, and have succeeded in surviving.
I am rich regardless of my “meager” income. I am rich in spirit, in confidence, and in happiness.
My strength lies in my will. And my will is something that no one can take from me, for I will retain it even in death.
