Never Complain of Your Fate

Pablo Neruda

What Really Matters The Most Is How You See Yourself

Published here on November 2, 2003. Original in Spanish, translation to English by Luis Prada.


Never complain of anybody, neither of anything, because fundamentally you have made what you wanted of your life.  Accept the difficulty of your own edification and the value of start correcting yourself.  The triumph of the true man surges of the ashes of his error.

Never complain of your loneliness or of your fate, face it with courage and accept it.  One way or another it is the result of your acts and a proof that you always have to gain.

Do not bitter yourself of your own failure nor burden it on somebody else, accept yourself now or you will continue justifying yourself as a child.  Remember that any moment is good to start and that none is so terrible to claudicate.  Do not forget that the cause of our present is your past, likewise the cause of your future will be your present.

Learn from the audacious, from the strong, from whom do not accept situations, from whom will live in spite of everything, think less of your problems and more of your work and your problems, without eliminating them, will die.

Learn to be born from pain, and to be greater than the greatest of the obstacles, look at yourself in the mirror of yourself and you will be free and strong and you will stop being a puppet of circumstances because you yourself are your destiny.

Get up and look at the sun in the mornings and breathe the light of dawning.  You are a part of the force of your life; now wake up, fight, walk, make your mind and you’ll succeed in life; never think of luck, because luck is the pretext of the unsuccessful.
