ENTER THROUGH THE NARROW GATE


My life has always been mucked up. I have spent the last year blaming everyone except myself for the mess of my life. Sex, drugs and rock and roll could be one way to explain the life Iíd led.

I had to finally make a decision which and what way to go. Should I continue with this mess or move on and go the other way.

I could see what was up ahead but all I was interested in was following the crowd.
Conforming to the ideas of the masses, not realising that I was falling into a big abyss. What directs us to make these decisions, sometimes we never look beyond what society dictates as acceptable?

I didnít realise at the time but I was always seeking happiness. I would have to think for myself make my own conscious decisions and not depend on the masses. How could I survive without the support? Once I made the decision to go alone life seemed so much easier.

After this awaking my life turned around and at last I became happy not only with myself but everything around me changed. I always thought happiness was having a good time.
I soon learnt happiness was peace of mind. Loving other people for who they were not for what they owned or the lifestyle they lived.

Soon I found people accepting me for what I am not just because Iím so and so.

The Narrow Gate was there all the time and all I had to do was Enter to find happiness.

Powerful message. Is this fiction or autobiography, I wonder? Thank you

So many people have come to the same realization contained in your message. It needs to be shared, if only to tell the younger generation they can make a choice towards happiness if they enter the Narrow Gate. Whether fiction or not it is a good message.
