When you were born, I believe, your parents were happy and proud of you. They were happy and proud to have a child like you. Did they celebrate? Most probably they did. I can visualize friends and relatives coming from far and near with gifts to celebrate. It was a great time.
Everybody was happy and proud of you.
What is the situation today? Are these same people still happy and proud of you? Is
your country proud of you?
If you are making the most of your talents, chances are high your parents, friends and admirers are proud of you.
If you are honest, diligent, and determined to make it big in life, they will be proud of you. If you are hard working and responsible, chances are your family, friends and community will be proud of you. Your country will be proud of you as well.
If you are irresponsible and live a reckless life that is marked by many vices, your people cannot be proud of you.You country cannot be proud of you. You have no reason to do this.
You owe your people – family, friends, and country, a duty to make them proud of you. And if you do not make them proud of you, please, spare them the sorrow of making them asham
ed of you.
