“Man means taking a stand, that sentence has become a rule in my life. I came to that conclusion when I needed help and stance from the people around me, unfortunately, there was no one to help. I was privileged. It was God’s predetermined plan that my whole life was turned upside down. I had a house, big and small vehicles. I lost them all. I sold everything I had just to not be ashamed in front of God and people. I wanted to live as proud as I used to be, and that is what I did, thanks to God. The hardships of life could not stop me. At that age I decided to start again from scratch. Now I have set up a small teahouse, it is much better than begging people. I did not allow myself to be ashamed in front of people, how will I allow myself to become ashamed in front of my own family!? I have hopes that my life will be back to normal. And I will not forget those people who I had lent ten thousand dollars to but did not help me back with a word or a dinar”.
