Have you completely changed your path in life - your career, lifestyle, spirituality, etc - even though all of the odds were against you?
You see when we where young well when I was young I really did not expect to enter the adult world and face so much barriers and preventions, making decisions which I really was not ready for. Yet through a lot of heart melting experiences and wake up calls and learning from other peoples mistakes and mistakes of my own. I never let that become a prevention, neither did I allow failure to be a closed door. I turned it into an opportunity, even though these opportunities where nightmares walking into having hope meant courage and strength. Bottom line is you will meet people, leave people never get the chance to say goodbye to people and then you question do I want to end up like certain people? I honestly sometimes had thought in my head which sort of doubted my goals in life? Yet that was not a barrier for me but a Challenge... My advise to people struggling is to never give up even when giving up seems to be the only option... If it is not meant to be then there is other ways to achieving what you want.. I lost friends I thought would be neighbours of mine when I reach old age, I seen family relatives who had goals in life pass away go prison or make a total mes off themselves.. and through that darkest hour in your life when you need people the most there is an inner voice inside you that voice is you? there is a reason we can think.. Focus, reflect and reset goals. Thinking is a price itself a achievement and a treasure use it and smile and even though you might make it or think you have reached your peak self-fulfilment never stop climbing up that ladder and always be grateful even when you have nothing left because there is always some things we might have that others may not have.

what inspires you to become a good person?
What inspires me to be a good person.... The heart and mind of an individual and the experience that comes with it inspires the intentions which determine the actions of a person. I personally believe to be a good person yet then we can question good in itself ? Can you be good and still make a wrong decision does that decrease how good you are as a person? Our actions and us as a person is very close connected. Your surroundings, your footsteps and what you see hear or say or do might still to you mean your good because of what you think of yourself? but then we question what do other think of you? I think what inspires us to be good is the motivation and ambitious and meeting people with beautiful hearts and wonderful minds. Which enables us to be just the same.. " treat others as how you want to be treated" if they treat you less then still love them and leave a door open for change. I have had a ruff experience in life and it did not change me or stop me from being myself and still being part of a society/community and taking active participation in attempt to create a better world. I met people who have a beautiful heart and I actually believe deep down there good people but there actions determine otherwise to those people though.. I can in my opinion say that due to limitation of jobs, addiction and what the system has made available for them to access I think they put aside who they are as person and decide to " bad things" in order to survive which is the sad trap to your question. But I believe to be optimistic and there is always a uturn to make a better person of yourself.. xx What a wonderful conversation. Thank you, you really made me reflect xx

What subjects do you think you should be taught at school nowadays?
I study youth and community work and to be honest as I am still learning I really think that sociology and psychology subjects should be added in the school Curriculum. The reason why I say this is because then it allows young people to be more critical and aware of what is being said to them, taught to them which then allows them to discuss and decide before accepting unconsciously as if the information given to them is right. By teaching young people about these subjects at a young age. It enables young people to reflect and look beyond the paper in front of them as well and I think when a young person is able to this they are also able to be more independent an be self-motivated in the decisions they make. :) I believe that biology and health is an important subject as well which enables us to understand our health and how we function physically combined with psychology to understand our brain and the way we think and to add that with sociology so that we know of our surroundings e.g. society, the system politics overall.. That is what I think anyways :)
