I think the title should be Never Give Up On Yourself. This was indeed a very inspiring story.
Thep power of the Human Spirit does amaze even me, a notorious skeptic.


However, part of being mature means accepting there are somethings(not yourself) that you cannot change and recogonizing when to through in the towel before you waste any more of your resources persuing it, whatever it is. If "it" is anything other than yourself, this applies. We cannot be good for others if we ourselves are not in a good place. Use whatever you want to define "good place" other than material things. Purses do not make us happy it only caters to a negative need we have. We want others to envy us, this is only because we are not satified with who we are deep down. Be good to yourself, be happy with who you are. If that means changing, do it.
