you can shape the world’s destiny-re-post

How true Daddy’s words were when he said: all children must look after their own upbringing. Parents can only give good advice or put them on the right paths, but the final forming of a person’s character lies in their own hands.-Anne Frank

each person was born with their own special character traits.
as children,
our parents and teachers guide us,
a helping hand among the seemingly invincible waves,
of life.
but,
even as children,
no one can mold us.
it is up to ourselves,
to shape our character,
and with it-
our lives,
our destiny’s.

there are times,
when it seems too hard.
we just want to give up,
want to submit,
to our yetzer hara.

but,
is it really worth it?
would you rather,
5 minutes of materialistic happiness,
or  eternal happiness in the world to come?
and,
tomorrow,
will that little forbidden act,
will it be all but forgotten,
only  inscribed  in the books up high?

you can shape the way you are,
you can shape the way the world looks at you,
and with that,
you can shape the world.

let’s all try to take a hard look at our character traits,
and choose to work on one.
