Everyone makes choices in their lives.  You make the choice to do good or be good, or maybe stray in the other direction.  Many will use excuses and blame other people (I was abused, my mom/dad wasn't around, I didn't have money growing up, etc...), but it is always your choice. 

You have the choice to be successful.  Before success comes hard work.  Notice that first word?  HARD.  Yeah, not going to be easy, but life is just like that.  Don't want to work hard?  Too lazy?  Don't cry about not having a good job or enough money to buy the things you want then.  I worked my butt off to get where I am today and will keep working because I want to be comfortable in life.  I'm OK with a little elbow grease because it shows that I have a strong will to be something in life. 

You have the choice to do good.  Being bad is an easy thing.  You do what you want to do and don't give any thought to consequences.  Who cares if it hurts someone in the long run?  You got what you wanted and that's all that matters.  Had your fun and suffer no repercussions.  That's how it works, right?  NOPE.  Every choice you make is either going to have a reward or consequence.  Sleeping around, stealing,'s all going to come back to haunt you one day because nothing ever stays hidden.  The truth always comes to light. 

Anyway, this isn't directed at just one person, just some advice in general.  I'm just tired of seeing people make terrible decisions and then blame it on someone else.  Apparently, no blame should come onto them.  It's preposterous and not a way to live life.

How glad I am that you are not a 'victim' of your past. I know things haven't been smooth sailing for you, but you have showed your strength of character to me and everyone around you. I love you, and am proud to have you as my daughter-in-law.
