Other people aren't out problem is ourselves that is the problem. You let them get you down push you around tell you what to do ?? Why cause you scared ?? Afraid what they think ? Don't be angry if you feel feeble. Just admit you were wrong. When will you admit ??

Admit? I agree partly with you. Society, parents, family, church, religion, they all try to rule your life or do rule your life. Although most people say it's good to be a personality, they do everything to break you down if you are not the same as the rest of the group. If you don't look the same, behave the same, respond the same. In reality there is no freedom of speach, you don't have the right to say your own opinion. If you do so you are rude, a-social, not attentive, people reject you, scold at you. So if you want to be you, you have to count with the fact that you will stand alone, that nobody will accept you, that you need to be your own best friend. That you need to walk with your eyes and ears closes and bite of your tongue many times. Children are being bullied and bully, same with adults. So it's not us being our own biggest enemy but the intolerance of the society! Nobody loves someone who is more talented, who is inventing new things since these kind of "professors" are always called weirdos! but in the end everybody is having profit from it. So think before you stab backs, point fingers at and gossip at/about others. There is no need to be friends with everybody. Just respect others and hope they will respect you as well. I already discovered at the age of 11/12 years old that nothing is so terrible as not being able to live with myself. To be fake, to wear a mask, which I do if I always have to please others (which is impossible since they will never be satisfied). So the price I payes was being beaten up in the worst ways for many years, leaving, living on my own without any friend or family. Moving for 14 years each year and hiding. A very high price I payed to be free!

Hi, You are right. Our biggest enemy is ourselves. We always think about what other people would say while doing any work. We give more importance to others. We can take some good advices from others. But we should have confidence and we should trust ourselves. We should not depend upon others for happiness or our success. We should accept our mistakes and should try to improve and learn from the mistakes. Thus we are the architect of our future.
