We all start life as babies but does that put us all on the same pedestal, i do not think so. Some are aid to be born with silver spoons and i believe others with wooden spoons and others still with no spoon at all. Some are born both physically and mentally whole for others that is not the scenario. While some start life with an edge others do not start life too well. Some start off with all the love they can get while others start life in a refuse dump unloved, unfed, uncared for. Left at the mercy of the elements or good samaritans. Some are raised in good homes with all the attention they deserve, the others though raised by their biological parents lack adequate attention and supervision. The neighbourhood matters, for some it is friendly, for others it is a war zone where life does not count for much. Some are put in good schools, acquire good education and are set at an advantage to start life on their own, on the other side, they go to schools where they learn terrible things life doing drugs, prostitution and for them life may spiral down from there on. Hmmm. Yet time and time again you'll see people who you think had all the advantages life has to offer bieng unable to cope in this race of life. On the other side are those who should not succeed, yet they overcome the disadvantages life threw at them and get to the top. Oh! I know people on both sides of the fence with all sorts of success or failure stories. In the cases where the tide turned for the better what was the driving force? In the cases where the tide turned for the worse what was the driving force? Someone help me understand.
