You probably know what it’s like to feel down. Probably so down, you’ve reached as far as you could possibly go!
When a person has experienced so much pain, there can be two options:
1. Become even more depressed and withdrawn.
2. Decide to do something about his/her life.
Those who choose number 2 can become obsessive. They have a passion to improve their life situation and will do whatever they can to do it.
Out of the passionate obsession, mastery can arise.
