*Before Nelson Mandela left prison he said “As I stand before the door to my freedom, I realise that if I do not leave my pain, anger and bitterness behind me, I will still be in prison”.*

Mistakes in life are also imprisonment. Yet sometimes, we refuse to come out. We prefer self-imposed imprisonment.

We hold grudges, become bitter and do not cooperate. We feel comfortable inside the walls of anger and resentment.

Forgiveness comes as bail. It should be accepted with a big smile of relief. What needs to be done is a fight with all our fears and failures. After all, mistakes were meant to make us a survivor… Not a victim!!

A survivor who has learned how to be humble yet strong, wise and mature.

    Being humble is not thinking less of yourself, it’s thinking of yourself less. Pride makes us artificial and humility makes us real!
