I have met a lot of people who have stumbled and/or fallen. I have lost count of the number of life related pot-holes. I went out of my way to take courses on how to teach life skills to those who constantly struggle to avoid the pitfalls. Sometimes it’s through no fault of their own and others have made poor lifestyle choices and end up in the same rut time after time. Having been there myself I felt was my social responsibility to help people turn things around and find some middle ground. Academics can get you far but sometimes the school of hard knocks can make you see the rocky path and teach you not to trip over the same path.
