Life is tough, and sometimes it might be pretty hard to make the right decision when facing certain difficulties on your way. Luckily, you are not the first neither you are the last one dealing with such problems. Probably there are many examples.
Whether you like it or not, whichever problem you face, it is likely that someone has already been there, and this someone might be able to share the experience with you. You can always talk to your friends, parents, or read some book or essay regarding a problem you are currently dealing with. Whatever you do, you are free to be either someone who follows the rules or the one to play it your own way, it is your choice only. Just remember that the answers to your questions might already be there, hidden in the plain sight.
