A Challenging Life

Being successful in the middle of lifes challenges

Let's make a list:

1) Mom dies before she knows her.

2) Dad remarries a woman who doesn't think she is worth an education
3) Her family is looked down on because mom had another kid from an affair

4) She falls in love with a married man

5) Dad disowns her because he doesn't approve

6) Sister commits suicide

7) Losses 3 of her children

8) Finally gets married only to have the guy die 6 years later

9) She is impoverished

10)Her father-in-law doesn't like her

What can we learn from her...

Surround yourself with encouragement and let the negative float away. Use that encouragement to do what you love and are good at...but don't make the same mistakes she did (she isn't the most moral person)
