In our own way
We all choose our lives - in our own way. Some of us choose to be happy - regardless of what happens. Others of us choose to be victims - regardless of what happens. I have chosen to be a fairly happy person - regardless of what has happened in my life. Of course, what happened in my earlier life, has coloured what I perceive, but I try to choose and disregard that which happened, which was out of my control.
