The world we live in is becoming more hectic and volatile, as cities and countries become more and more overcrowded, the personal space of an individual is becoming more fraught with friction. Today’s society has become less patient, people are getting used to getting things instantly, from fast food to the latest gadget. This only increases an individuals hunger to fight for whatever they may want. Patience seems to be a thing of the past, and people will do anything to feed their wants and desires.
You do not have to follow the same path as everyone else, you can tread a different path, you can follow the way of the wise, making love, peace and patience your trusty friends. You do not need to argue and fight with life or the world, this will only leave you entrapped within a society that cares more for materialism than the well-being of it’s individuals. Step out of the circle my friend, there is another way, you must drop the need for instant gratification, this only continues the internal fight, which more often than not results in external arguments, be that with your friends and family or a neighbour or work colleagues.

I do not believe that there is a single person living, who can claim, that in their whole life they have never made a mistake. Indeed, most people will tell you, that it has been through their mistakes, that they have learned the most valuable life lessons. I believe the real tragedy is when people do not recognise their mistakes and continue to keep repeating them, and so embarks on a neverending cycle of behaviour, that does not help them to move forward and improve their lives.
Having said this, I do not want to diminish the impact that making mistakes, errors of judgement, can have on peoples lives. There is no doubt, that the affects of our actions can carry with them, the most terrible of consequences. The business man, who having made a poor judgement call, or took one risk to many; knows the bitter taste of bankruptcy. The husband or wife who felt taken for granted and in one mad moment, throws away many years of happy marriage; friends for many years, betray a confidence one too many times, knows the cold reality of being ostracized. The driver behind the wheel, who in a moment of inattention and carelessness, causes an accident that changes his life and the lives of others forever.
