  2. Emeasoba George:

    Do you know? You may need to move backward sometimes in order to move forward like never before. Yes of course, backwardness do precede forwardness. Now, may I ask. Are you currently down to nothing? Or are you presently experiencing a setback in anything and for any reason? Or have you lost anything worth having like money, opportunities or any other valueable thing? If yes, then cheer yourself up. For, sooner or later you will bounce back into glory or goodies like never before. I mean, you will soon recover whatever you do think that you've lost. Yes! your later or subsequent glory/dignity shall surpass your former or past glory/dignity.
