Don't let the disappointments of your past keep your present from being as great as it should be.
There are many instances in our lives in which we may all want to just give up and give in because our lives have never went the way we may have wanted it to.
We may start to live our lives after a real bad period, and see things turning for the worse as we did before, and just give up on life as it is period, many of us have been there before.
Instead of expecting the worse in life just because you have been through so much, expect that good things are bound to happen because you have been through so much. We have all been through difficult times, and things do always have the ability to get worse, but we can at least try to have a positive attitude.
Just try to think positively, if you try and you fail to make positive results happen, you will still have much more of a chance than you would if you never tried at all.
