If you have heard others repeatedly say to you “stop taking things so personally” with a tone of exasperation and frustration, and heard yourself say “everybody is just against me, I can’t seem to do anything right” then it might be time to put down those victim-mentality glasses that taint the way you see the world.

I experienced this with hearing of Karina Anderson’s work, and then interviewing her about the SmilingOne’s NPO initiative ‘The SmilingOne Foundation’ and the SmilingOne Change Agents. And then I had a conversation with one of those SmilingOne Change Agents, Franklin Esau, who turned his life around from one of crime, to a life of understanding and kindness, and a significantly positive contribution to society.
