Why to be a male?
Why to be born in 1995?
Why that poor family?
Why on planet earth if I can imagine there can be more freedom and independence anywhere else?
These are the normal questions of life, everyone wonders.
I also asked myself such questions, except why I am a man.
Even if you dont had optimal start conditions, take responsibility and see what you can achieve.
Its yours to own.
It goes quite fast to invade a kind of victim role and then fall into a kind of standstill. It helps to take responsibility and to show the neurocortex who is the boss in the house.
You will also not become a man if you only grow up physically, Own your shit and Integrate yourself fully into life. Take responsibility for yourself and if you don't like something, try to change it. And if you can't change it, try to live with it gracefully.
As BlankMind wrote, everyone has potential.
For me, consciousness is like your soul, and the mind is that what your physical brain produce or how the brain influences the soul as an interface.
Maybe you also have a well developed consciousness and thats why you had a bit more difficult starting conditions. Because you can handle it and make the best of it.
