Everyone wants to be appreciated and loved

It is a universal truth that everyone wants to be appreciated and loved.

Do not ignore the small daily happenings because happiness in life is built around them.

We all are searching for a hand to hold on to and a heart that understands.

There is always a debate on what is right or wrong. However, we can always be kind; there is no debate on this.

If you are afraid of failure, then you will never succeed. Failure is an important stepping stone to success.
The period of transition is the most difficult and painful period in life. We all have to go through it, if we need to change something for better.
