Every child grows up believing they can reach for the stars, they can accomplish anything they aspire to. We are all raised to believe we can become astronauts, actors, and famous scientists if only we try hard enough. But the reality is much different from what we are taught to believe.

Those days, once full of dreams and hopes seems someone else’s story now. Carefree souls have been wither with the reality.
