People often do not set high goals for themselves for certain reasons. These reasons can be reasonable or totally unreasonable. Some of the reasons go like “it is not for me”, “it is just the beginning”, “it is out of my league” or “it is impossible”. We do not understand that even if we fail, we have somehow achieved something. We have achieved experience, wisdom, knowledge, etc. we learn from our mistakes and these mistakes encourage us to do better. Aiming for something higher in life will only help us in the future.
A decision can be defined as an action taken in a situation of uncertainty.

Emotional abuse is another form of mental abuse. Many times victims do not realize that they are in an emotionally abusive relationship. While physical abuse uses violent forms for traumatizing the victim physically, emotional abuse intimidates the victim, demeans, punishes, and makes the victim feel humiliated or scared. Sometimes even name-calling, yelling and screaming at the victim is also involved. The ill effects of emotional abuse include the victim feeling depressed, confused, difficulty in concentrating, feeling worthless and sometimes lead to poor physical health also.
