He’s upright, strong and in control. His small presence belies his strength, tenacity and will. And well, he’s confident. Assured. Knows who he is…

    I notice that a lot of ur quality as a man is similar to mine and I was trying to see how do you become so confident and successful if urself isn’t letting you. How do you find that peace in ur life when ur afraid of everything I say that because life, love, family, friends, society, myself. How do you overcome that and start living for you and not wat others wat you to do.
