In a moment, the sea changes

You have to be your own master. Don't worry about talking more or less than your neighbors.

I remember what one of my brothers said not long ago: remember: you are no longer a sister-in-law

Damn it.

To learn to bear, even if there is a grievance, don't put it all on the surface.

You don't have to show that the world has hurt you. You have to try to change.

Nothing can't go, just like nothing can go back.

The same reason, but sometimes, I always get stuck in the slit and can't get rid of it

Open Life is used to using mean and cruel means to let us know: either survive in change, we should

It fades away in silence.

Since you can't change the environment, change yourself.

This is the philosophy of change, and this is the truth of survival.

I've seen such a sentence on the Internet before: I'm such a person.

Others go the same way to the dark,

Hit the south wall and turn around.

As for me, I don't look back when I hit the south wall. I want to tear down the south wall and continue to walk.

I admire this kind of character, brave and tenacious.

But now, when you think about it carefully, everything is spiritual. Where is all black or white

I like reading very much. I clearly remember reading the stories of Liu Bang and Xiang Yu at the end of the Qin Dynasty.

One is the descendant of nobility and the overlord of Western Chu who can carry the tripod; One is a small gangster in Peixian County, a common people

It turned out that the latter Liu banglian and many excellent generals defeated the former Xiang Yu, which was really amazing

Think What I can't let go is Xiang Yu's final choice.

According to the historical records of Xiang Yu, after Xiang Yu was defeated by Liu Bang in the Chu Han war, Xiang Yu led 800 people

Ma broke through the siege and came to the Bank of the Wujiang River.

At this time, the head of the Wujiang Pavilion advised Xiang Yu to cross the river quickly in order to make a comeback and report

Qiu Xue hated, but Xiang Yu said with a smile: When heaven dies, why should I cross! He crossed the river with 8000 children from Jiangdong

West, no one is back now. My father and brother have pity on me in the east of the river. How can I see it! Even if he doesn't speak, he is worthy of his own heart

Oh! So he pulled out his sword and killed himself.

If he chose to return to Jiangdong, or now the overlord of Western Chu has long been a famous emperor;

We don't know what history looks like and whether it should be rewritten.

However, the fact has become a foregone conclusion, and too many regrets have gone with the wind.

And I also clearly understand that everything can't be too rigid and inflexible. If this road is blocked, we should go

Another way, try, there is always a right truth.

If you want to do something, don't show off or publicize it.

Just do it quietly.

Because it's your own business, others don't understand your situation, and it's impossible to help you realize your dream.

Never show off because of vanity.

Don't give up your dream because of a comment from others.

In fact, the best state is to stick to your dreams and try more. Whether it is worth it or not, time is the best proof.
