Throughout the course of our lives, whatever path we take, we can never fully shield ourselves from the opinion of man. As long as humans have mouths, they will always use them for their interest whether for a good cause or bad. All of us have experienced being told something offensive and rude, and unfortunately, for many of us, this has caused them to break down.
Who were once ambitious people are now hopeless and broken-hearted because they allowed the opinion of a mere person to dictate the fate of their lives. The people who had wild dreams and resilient spirits ceased to walk down the road because they believed in what a stranger (who barely knows you) told them. It’s saddening to witness these people’s dreams being shattered to an extent where they no longer want to dream again.
