As I sat back in my chair, I was gasping for breath.
My heart pounded against my rib-cage, wanting to burst open.
I felt my face radiating heat, as a piece of metal does when it has been kept in flame for a while.
My vision was blurred and my hands wouldn’t stop shaking.
I was confused. I wanted to cry , I wanted to be left alone. I wanted to be quiet and say nothing yet at the same time I wanted to get back for being spoken to like that.

The truth is you cannot escape people who want to hold you back, one step you climb on the ladder, there will be 10 people to pull you down. There is nothing that you can do about it or can you?
It’s not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters.
