as we learn to negotiate the twists and turns, we become more adept at dealing with the difficult times and the periods of confusion.
It is only through facing these challenges, head-on, that any progress can be made.
By that I mean, in dealing with the various crises that arise, we learn about life; what it is, and more importantly, what it is not.
At the same time we learn about ourselves, both who we are and who we may become.
There are many people who will try to answer these questions for us, each with their own motivation for doing so.
But we must resist falling into the moulds that others have cast for us, and endeavour to find out for ourselves who we are and what our place is in the world;
the answer to this question is different for each of us and it is often a painful and distressing process to address it.
But address it we must, if we wish to live authentic fulfilling lives, rather than superficial charades.
