I just had to say this: In this world, after all said and done, the truth of the matter is that you are the only person who you can truly depend upon. It's not to say that you are not loved or cared for or looked upon. It just is. And that is when you realize that you are not a kid, but a grown-up.
Sophocles has said it the best when he said, "The keenest sorrow is to recognize ourselves as the sole cause of all our adversities." And when you stop blaming others and giving excuses and truly look inside into you, you would see the courage to stand within and trust our own instincts. I wish I could remember these as long as I live.
