Your present circumstances don't define you.


"Your present circumstances don't determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start."

-Nido Quien


I stumble on this quote that reminds me of myself in the past. I used to let the circumstances affect me; I thought whatever happened to me would block me from moving forward.


I thought I would get stuck in that situation forever. I felt my heart would never heal, and I would never get out of that impossible struggle.


I even beat up and blamed myself for whatever happened. I had been dwelling on the negativities and focusing on problems. I had let myself wallow in self-pity too long.


And there comes a time in my life when I have realized that I have to do something for myself. If I don't love and don't see my self-worth, no one will.


Everyone makes mistakes; we all must go through hard times in life, and it doesn't matter if we will get knocked down, but what counts is we have to get up.


Our present circumstances don't define our future and ourselves; it's just a starting point. And the best is yet to come.
