When you achieve success, people will say it's just luck, ignoring the efforts and struggles you have gone through.

But when you fail, they will mock and belittle you, labeling you as incompetent.

This is how life can be, once they have made up their minds, no matter how kind-hearted or good you are, they will still see you as an unlikable person.

Therefore, live your life in the best way possible, be genuine and show love to those who have been there for you during difficult times. Don't let the opinions of others weigh you down, because they were never the ones who nurtured you.

Grown up, no longer naïve, let's live our lives to the fullest!

Success is not just about overcoming challenges, but also about staying true to oneself and protecting one's cherished values

Striving is not to become someone else or to change the world, but to remain unchanged by the world, to stand firm in the midst of life with one's own two feet, and to protect those around us with all the ability we possess.

Stepping onto the journey of life, we often face the presence of unintended judgments from others. When we achieve success, it is attributed to luck and opportunities that come from above. But when we encounter failure, there is no shortage of mockery and comparison to those deemed less competent. Isn't this injustice and harshness in life?


As a teaching assistant who has spent nearly half of my life in the field, I have witnessed these contrasting expressions on my career path. During times of progress, every success is undermined and attributed solely to luck. Yet, when faced with failure, criticism and distancing become cruel realities. So, where is fairness in the hearts of humanity?
Nevertheless, we cannot allow others to determine our worth. In reality, the opinions of others, whether critical or praising, are irrelevant to our true value. What matters most is that we live our own lives, build meaningful values, and overcome the blurry evaluations from others.
Life may be unfair, but we can create fairness for ourselves. This is an important message I always try to convey to my students. Live sincerely and show love to those close to us in difficult times. Do not let negative voices and criticism damage our self-belief and confidence, for those individuals do not have the authority to judge our abilities and worth.
We have grown and are no longer naive as before. Together, we can journey along the path of maturity and create a bright and meaningful future. Trust in our own abilities, and do not let any judgments or low assessments from others shake our confidence.
Each of us possesses the potential and prospects for success. Do not miss opportunities, skillfully execute plans, learn from key moments, and patiently overcome the challenges that life presents. Appreciate the dedication and sincere effort that you invest in your work and education. Success is the result of relentless efforts and unwavering perseverance.
Remember, the world is not always fair, but what is important is that we construct our own lives and build true values. Therefore, live with confidence and join hands with loved ones, rising above through our own efforts and love. We are no longer innocent children, but mature individuals who know how to face and overcome negativity, and build a future full of promise.
