Strive Always for Awareness
Sandy Irizarry, Single, 2 Children; Age 49, Psychotherapist 
        What I would tell the next generation is to remember the importance of, and strive always for awareness. Be conscious of what's going on around you and within you. If you don't know who you are, how you function and what you're feeling, you cannot achieve success in life. Anger when not addressed as a problem from within, will lead to hate, unhappiness and destruction of self and others. Before you accomplish your goals in life you must know and conquer your fears. Awareness leads to change. Here is anexample: if a person fears authority but is brilliant and capable on the job, then he would simply have to address and conquer his fear of authority, allowing him to get along and get ahead in his life. If, instead of this, he covers his fear with a defiant and negative attitude, he will never get ahead and experience success. Never run away from acknowledging what you're really feeling. To deny your vulnerabilities is not brave but rather cowardly. If we cannot know and love our real selves we cannot have a satisfying relationship to others and to life.
